Samson: And this last item is not a mention of Nabokov, but a statement
that all
of us will immediately associate with VN: in a local publication's
interview with the controversial paleontologist and dinosaur expert (and
consultant on JURASSIC PARK) Robert Bakker, Bakker is quoted as saying
"Artists can see the world more clearly than scientists. Art is
broadening and science, if you're not careful,can be narrowing. The best
artists are scientists."

DIMENT: I do hope Bakker does not consider JURASSIC PARK
"art"! That would severely compromise an otherwise fine sentiment...
