Re: [dinosaur] nothing controversial here



The original quote is from a critique written by Arthur Bingham Walkley of 
George Bernard Shaw's play "Widower's Houses". The quote can be found on page 
737 of the 17 December 1892 issue of "The Speaker". The original quote is: 
"Scratch a middle-class hero and you find a rascal".

The quote; "Scratch a paleontologist and you find a controvery"  I believe 
comes from one of many interviews with John Horner, focusing on his 
Triceratops/Torosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus/Stymoloch/Dracorex, or 
Tyrannosaurus/Nanotyrannus views. I'm digging through the current literature 
looking for this quote.

I hope this helps.
