It seems most appropriate that as I find myself trying to unravel the tales and sightings of a decidedly unique series of sightings of a seemingly “American dinosaur species,” a living one at that, my thoughts would turn to the late dino hunter, Scott Thomas Norman.
Scott would have been 44 years old today, March 15, 2008. He was a good and decent person. As we use to say in the Midwest, Scott was “good people.”
Sometimes he found himself surrounded by ridicule mongers and worse. He calmly plowed ahead, nevertheless, turning the other cheek.
These screen captures are from the outrageous “Penn & Teller” treatment of Scott on their “Cryptozoology” episode. At least, these photos, this way, in silence, do Scott some justice.
I pray someday someone will take all the YouTube P&T “Cryptozoology” segments, edit out P&T’s swearing and ridicule-filled side comments, and just post Scott’s interviews as “stand-alones.” Now that would be a worthy tribute, and something those in his family would enjoy. It also would go to the core of what he was trying to say, and without the surrounding side comments, Scott’s remarks make must sense. I, however, refuse to publish the links to Penn & Teller profanity-filled videos here, the way they are now.
