Actually, it was "like a locomotive." But, you're right, it did sound pretty
much like "phwiit."

My major problem with the program was its pretense of being based on
"scientific" extrapolations of the "laws of evolution." The honest approach
would have been to bill it plainly as "fantasy," meant for entertainment
purposes only.

I'm in the midst of writing planetarium education program guides under
Florida Sunshine State Standards for local county science teachers (project
partly supported by a grant from the State of Florida, Department of State,
Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Arts Council, and the National
Endowment for the Arts), and it's almost impossible to counter the flashy
misinformation churned out as "science" on television.
