From our local paper’s telephone line.

The Dinosaurs Were Hollering
by Anonymous Caller

The DinosaursWere HolleringI was calling in
in reference to the article
in today’s paper
a couple days before Thanksgiving
about global warming.

Well, they seem to think
the Republicans are hollering,
“Oh, global warming.” Well,
I wonder what the dinosaurs
were hollering
when they had the Ice Age?

Was the Ice Age caused by man?

I’d just like to know
what caused
the change back then?

Maybe that’s what’s causing
the change today.

What do you think?


FYI: Scholastic article about extinction theories.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about the rye bread I made the other day.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What is your main character hollering when things go south?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    OK. The dinosaurs didn’t experience the Ice Ages, because those started roughly 2 millllllllllion years ago. The dinos didn’t make it past 65,000,000-ish YA.

    But it’s nice to have an inquiring mind.

    I recommend “after the ice” by Stephen Mithin. (Spoiler: It doesn’t involve dinos.)

    About global warming: HELPPPPPPPPPP!!!
    I’m not aiming to end my senior years living in a flooded gutter just because Republicans can’t learn science.

    What to do:
    Persuade Exxon etc that there is a premium in selling non-fossil fuels. ETC.!
