    They also ran an *Archaeoraptor* update on an episode of "Explorer" that
I saw last - was it Saturday? (02/12/00) The segment noted pretty much the
same thing as this article; *Archeoraptor* may have been a fraud, but the
evidence for the bird/dinosaur link remains strong. The rest of the episode
was a repeat of segments on L. Psihoyos, *Jobaria*, etc.
