Crichton awarded a prize by American geologists

Good grief, how desperate is your cause when you give a fiction writer your journalism prize?
I tried reading 'State of Fear' but gave up after a hundred or two pages. If you think The Divinci code is an excellent expose on the Catholic church, you'll love SoF.
Thankfully, not everyone agrees with MC, including some obviously dissident geologists (here) although lots of those same geologists love him.
As for the ending of SoF: “Everybody has an agenda. Except me.”, may i humbly offer the agenda "i want to sell loads of story books to gullible readers and make a stonkingly large amount of cash". All a credible response to science in today's US of A.

Could even Chricton have made this crap up?
