It's a hoot, all right, Oliver Hay's  part, that is. Mary Mitchell's pen and

Even more interesting is Weber's reconstruction of  Gilmore's concept of 
Ceratosaurus in a remarkably modern-looking pose. It's  rather sad Gilmore has 
been made the punching-bag for certain of the "Dinosaur  Renaissance" crowd. DV
