True, and a very good point!
But I was not (intentionally) suggesting my interpretation of the evidence was
one, just, in my opinion, the most likely one. For instance, I also couldn't
the possibility that giant green space gerbils from the planet Kleenex were the
culprits. However, I have made a logical conclusion from the available
know he pissed off fossil thieves, we know he received warnings not to continue
course of action, and we know that his two dead cats were mysteriously
deposited on his
doorstep. The most parsimonious conclusion I can think of, the police would
and most people out there would think of, is the one I gave. Of course, it
may not be
provable, but then again, neither is a lot about the dinosaurs we all know and
dearly : )
Then again, perhaps the article shouldn't have included anything but the
although being a human interest feature, there is a little more leeway.
If what I said came off sounding like ridicule, I'm very sorry, that's just my
(admittedly sarcastic) sense of humor poking through. I didn't mean to offend
Until next time,
PS - I did use the words "fossil" and "dinosaurs" in this message : )
