My apologies, Paul...

I meant to say "some producers", but the word "some"
inadvertantly got dropped due to my carelessness.

Sorry for the unintentionally broad smear which I retract.

As to the NOVA producers who lied to Budd Hopkins (and John
Velez) and sliced and diced their passionate and heartfelt
efforts, I would not only bring my own popcorn to their
"Entertainment Funerals", I'd pass out party favors for free
(noisemakers, confetti, etc). It should be a grand time.
