Re: Second Thoughts on Sue

        Does the Chicago museum charge for admission? This would be a way to 
raise money for new paleo-jobs.
        I have no doubt that McDonald's and Disney will recoup their investment 
in Sue several times over with merchandise and admission dollars. I would not 
surprised to see more corporate sponsership for digs like we now see for 
exhibitions - it's an excellent PR activity - promoting science. I seem to 
recall in the thread about Jurassic Park, people mentioning that big business 
profiting from dinosaurs should lend their monetary support back into the 
science. This is what they are doing - although it's not for totally charitable 
reasons, I'm sure, but it's cash going where it's needed.
