Last Winter I--and a fair number of some other paleos--got approached to
be in this show. I wonder if they found a victim among the professionals,

Just saw a trailer for next Friday's riveting episode of Ancient Aliens

stuff.  And yes, about 25 years ago the now defunct Weekly World News
ran a 2 page article entitle "Alien Hunters from Outer  Space Hunted
Down Our Dinosaurs".  I believe I still have a copy of that somewhere.

Teach the controversy!
