When Good Technical Papers...GO BAD!

Wow. I was going to write about Sereno's new hollow-boned allosaur, but I just can't do it justice like Matt Wedel can. I haven't seen a good old fashioned verbal smackdown like this since the Blue Collar Scientist mowed people down on his blog. If you want some entertainment and scientific enlightenment, I urge you all to read Part the First and Part the Second of the Aerosteon saga.

Actually, Jeff never mowed people down, so much as stupidity.

For that (and many other reasons), I miss him.

Good point. It was rarely the person he went after, but their idiot notions.

*sigh*
