Mistake in paper on necks ...

Yes, the 70 foot 100 ton reference in the associated press on Parrish
and Steven's work seems to have magically appeared.  Mike and Kent
know that Apatosaurus was not 70 feet tall and 100 tons.  Please
ignore those glaring errors in the associated press release.  Maybe
they were referring to those obese sauropods who had to eat
nutrient-poor conifers as a slim-fast diet rather than those succulent
ferns and horsetails at the ol' Allosaurus In-and-Out. =)  Or, the
weight of a sauropod on Jupiter. =) =)
