Re: John Bois on Armadillos at the K/T!
The apology is appreciated, John.
Hope you weren't too close for comfort the other day when the College
Park tornado passed. I was half a mile away and for a while it sounded like
a herd of sauropods ('Brontosaurus', or 'thunder lizards) thundering across
College Park, south-to-north, right up U.S. Route 1.
So much damage! I was glad to hear Tom Holtz was unscathed.

Ray, I apologize for making this mistake. It wasn't intentional. I was
not trying to slide anything through. I simply slipped in putting the
usual qualifiers in. I know very well what is and isn't known about thios
issue. And I know that most here know that there is no evidence for how
pterosaurs disappeared. You're right, I was speaking in a conversational
mode amongst informed readers, but not all readers are informed. I _am_
careful with my students, to tell them what is and isn't known.
