Egregious?  Oh, yes, it would be much better if all degreed paleontologists 
had high-paying jobs funded by taxes taken from the rest of us, because 
that's a much more honest way of accumulating $8M than by selling 
hamburgers or mouse ears.  Oh, yes, Sue on public display in the 
Midwest is terrible, and a copy at a wildly popular tourist attraction 
is even worse.  We all know it should be locked up where it can be 
studied only by professionals.  :-)
