Er, talking of which, I don't think I've ever asked that question -
the former, anyway - and certainly not here.

It might have passed over you, but this was exactly my point...
that scientists will pay attention if sufficient evidence is

So what is it with these 'professionals', Stanton? Why isn't your
message hitting home?

Field investigations, yes. Visited archives, yes. Had a security
clearance? It would be disingenuous of me if I wasn't up front in
saying that the only such clearance is to certain media firms and
the Royal Veterinary Hospital, which probably, I'm thinking,
won't interest you.

> Talk is cheap.

Yes, quite. That's kind of my point too.
