Intro: T-Shirts. Outro: Sleepyhead.

The Text:

This week’s text is Airport, spanning from pages 69 – 71. 

Dodgson meets his mysterious inside man, going over the details of the plan, showing that there are more nefarious deeds afoot this weekend, during the inspection. 

Discussions surround:

Believe me, I know!, Island layout, Timeline, Dodgson's man, Weighin in, Elaborate security measures, Building a Mystery, and more!

Corrections:

         I was mistaken – I keep crediting Ed Regis with the line “Welcome to Jurassic Park,” which is famously said by Hammond in the film – but in reality, nobody actually says it: quote: The group followed Ed Regis toward the nearest buildings. Over the path, a crude hand-painted sign read: “Welcome to Jurassic Park” (p. 80). It was just a sign. My mistake. 

I said that Dr. Alan Grant was working at the University of Utah, but of course, I was wrong, it is instead University of Denver, in Colorado. That Morrison Formation is tripping me up – the danged thing spans across too many states – that said, of course Grant was not excavating from the Morrison Formation, it was the Two Medicine Formation (probably). 

Side effects: 

May make you feel alert and excited all day, until it's you time, and then you'll feel lousy and worn out.
