Didn't call it a fake; just said that if a specimen (any specimen) is a fake, 
one should call it a fake rather than a "chimera" or some other such 
wishy-washy term.

Haven't heard any bad rumors about Tom recently.

Saw a fake post supposedly from Dale Russell on the vert paleo list in which 
he says he is resigning his position in North Carolina for personal reasons. 
This post is definitely a fake; Dale is happily ensconced in North Carolina 
and still wondering why anyone would send such a post to the vert paleo list.

At SVP heard of at least one "feathered lizard" fossil being offered for sale 
from China. Not a dino, a lizard. Tim Rowe's SVP talk with CT scans of a 
phonied-up Chinese Confuciusornis specimen was enlightening.
<< How things have changed since the days of Marsh and Cope!!! >>

Haven't changed much at all. You should see what Marsh did to some of his 
specimens to make them look good.
