      I don't know what the big deal is with "goofs" in JP & TLW dino
yes they sometimes approach silliness, but if we look at the history of
most of the hard science we 'kne' then is kind of silly now(see Trachodon).
If they
pique one child's interest in a new world - wonderful, if they  help support
one museum-fantastic,if they contribute to the ability of someone to do
research that
otherwise might not get support -super, and if in doing all this they are
and somewhat inaccurate -awwwwww-ful. Ask anybody who's ever had a great
(and boring)   project idea and no grant money 7 times out of 10 the'll say
TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN.  Purists are very valuable, but it helps if
they are independantly wealthy.
