THYREOPHORES AND PUBLICATION: A VIEW FROM THE PEANUT GALLERY

showering all manner of criticisms on you every step of the way.>>
The reason that I tend to give George and Tracy a hard time about their
thyreophore ideas is because up until recently, not only were their ideas
secret, but they had no hope of future publication. This is changing however,
and we should see something published soon- and because of that, I'll stop
giving them a hard time (until after the paper is out anyway :-) ).
And by the way.... I think it's funny that Mr Kinman, of all people, has the
gall to call legitimate students and professionals in the field of paleontology
"the peanut gallery."
PS: Many of you sent me personal email over the last week or two and I didn't
respond. Don't think I hate you, it's just that my mouse broke, and Gateway
took their sweet time sending a new one my way.
