RE: (intentionally left blank?): warning: mild humor



   Actually, I object to referring to dinosaurs as "stupid", although I'm
sure Betty doesn't
really mean it.  And having lived my life as a scientist in Texas: I KNOW
stupid, like
What's-His-Name knows sports!

Cheers;
Dwight

        it's just so much easier if you people agree that the stupid things
are
        ALL birds but only the bird group that survived the KT was Aves.
