RE: A little off subject...Re: Sue had no wishbone...

In no way should someone who has achieved the accolades of their peers and
earned their stripes through hard work and diligence be disregarded.  Dr(s)
Bakker, Horner and the rest have earned and, (of course) well deserve them.
I meant that lack of formal schooling on a subject should not discount
someone's achievements.

  In response to Steve Brusatte's comments on Pete Larson, and
the preceeding on Bakker, it should be known that Bakker
possesses a PhD in biology, Horner an honorary degree in
[Philosophy?] from Yale, and Pete Larson had undergone six years
to get his doctorate, but had been turned down at the last. Not
one I would not call a un-professional, and each is an avid
member of Academia. Often, all a doctorate is is a few letters
after your name, but this often signifies the years of training
one has gone through, so in fact, it _does_ mean something.
