Something about dinosaurs.

I’d like to say lots of intelligent things about this article about Matt Lamanna that reader Stasia pointed out to me.  I’d like to sound informed and capable of carrying on a conversation about the early dinosaurs.

I’m diligently trying to read the article, but instead I keep scrolling to the picture up top and suddenly very loud “bow chicka bow” music starts playing in my head.

I’m getting nowhere.

However:  Bow. Chicka. Bow.

“Matt is a perfect example of the type of scientist we want,” says Beard.

How odd.  I was thinking the exact same thing.

In related news, the head of the museum resigned today.  As Matt’s unofficial publicist/agent/#1 fan, I’m wondering if a letter of recommendation from me encouraging them to promote Matt would be too forward?

    Cute, but possibly bad hairline (judging from picture 2.) I’m holding out for more photos, or a real life sighting.

    It could take a year to identify a new director … In the meantime, they’ll appoint an acting director or a group of acting directors. It’s likely that at least one will be from Vertebrate Paleontology (Matt’s office), especially with the upcoming new dinosaur hall. So, I say … go for it!!
