Re: The today programme

Can't wait, Tom Swift said decrepitically. "Brontosaurus" was a pterosaur, eh?

Subject: The today programme

There was a piece on BBC radio4's today programme just now
about some silly theory about all dinosaurs being aquatic.

It was pretty easily put down by a 2nd interviewee but really
- we're used to a bit higher standard of debate from the
today programme.  Surely they could have found a better
current dino story if they wanted one!

A shame, really. Since tomorrow there is going to be some REAL dinosaur news (he said, cryptically...)
