Re: on being a paleontologist
I am not a paleontologist either. I don't find reading about long extinct
animals depressing. I did recently read a book about bird species that
have become extinct in the last few centuries. THAT depressed me. I guess
it has to do with the fact that most were caused by my own species. Lynn

altho not a paleontologist, i find it fascinating. in fact, i find it
much more depressing the animals we are currently driving into extinction
rather than the ones who were extinct before my time (perhaps the
tasmanian wolf is the closest i come to finding it depressing -- i've seen
the films of them and it's like seeing a living dinosaur).
