Dewey, you are a master at deflecting questions that you don't want to
answer.  You know what I meant.  Answer the question.  Prior to Alvarez
et al.'s discovery of the layer ("zone" or whatever you want to call the
iridium anomaly), how many similar layers had Peter Vail *previously*
worked on?

The question is a legit one, because it relates to your misinterpretation
of my earlier comment that no one (Big Names included) had any experience
working on such a layer.
