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.
