Andy Once a teacher, always a teacher.
What an inventive way to engage young students!
Good for Dr. Krantz!

Bill Boqs Alas, my geriatric computer appears to be unable to open the file. Can anybody tell me what I'm missing? Even a PM would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

Bossburg If anyone else can't open the link, go to the Washington Post and do a search for Krantz, you find a couple links that take you to the article.

Bill Boqs Thanks, Boss. I did exactly as you suggested. It worked.

Somewhat unsettling, I thought -- but certainly not without educational value. Kind of reminded me of the English utilitarian philosopher, Jeremy Bentham (I think), who had himself stuffed and mounted and placed on display at the university where he taught. Or maybe the late comedian, Del Close, who willed his skull to the Goodman School of Drama in Chicago where it continues to render good service as Poor Yorrick in Hamlet.

Considering Krantz' field of expertise, though, I think the gift of his body probably makes a valid point. Perhaps, someday, his bones will be on display next to the fully assembled skeleton of a sasquatch. It would be the kind of educational tool, and demonstrative evidence, he could only dream about during his lifetime. And after all that the good Dr. went through, who wouldn't want to tell the rest of the scientific community, "I told you so"?

cascadiansquatcher My small book of Sasquatch writings coming out soon is dedicated to Grover's memory.

You gotta admire him, and, with his dog is the perfect way to do it.

His book is with two others the core of my Sasquatch library.
