Re: Question

Caleb, etc.

    So that you know that someone noticed your 2 postings of the same
question (with different Subjects) - The dinosaur in question is _Scipionyx
samniticus_.  This dinosaur is from Italy, and made the news nearly a year
ago (although it was known to several people well before then).   I believe
it was the cover story for Nature magazine in April or May 1998.

    Just recently, the same dinosaur has made the news again with a press
release from the Oregon State University group (Nicholas Geist specifically,
associated with Larry Martin and Alan Feduccia).  See references to Subjects
"CNN:Is it snowing in Oregon?", "Trippy Skippy", "AP story on Scipionyx",
"CNN: fossil shows dinosurs were supercharged", and "Turbocharged

for example -
