Re: Paleocene dinosaurs of ojo alamo sandstone

There are many problems with this paper, but I will draw attention to one 
interesting point.

Notice in the final discussion section, that Fassett refers to papers 
coauthored by "Sullivan, Boere, & Lucas", and: "Sullivan, Lucas, & Braman" as 
exactly that: he does not abbreviate them to Sullivan et al. 

Typo? I don't think so.

Alamosaurus probably wasn't KT in age. I am not going into the details here: it 
will be demonstrated in time. SW latest K stratigraphy is clouded by some poor 
strat papers. This paper is another of those.

How probable is it that the plants that produced those pollen types already 
existed in the end-K in that region? Maybe they haven't been found elsewhere 
because the Ojo Alamo Sandstone counts as an "upland" deposit or something...?
