I have been lurking on this list for several years and have never posted
before...but the snobbish attitude about Disney and McDonalds helping the
Field Museum get "Sue" really has me hacked off. I think we should be
grateful to the private sector for helping to foot the bill for research
etc... NOT make fun of their respective business. If Disney has a replica at
Disney World....SO WHAT??? More people will get the chance to see it......
