On the "Tonight Show" last night, Jay Leno twice introduced Christopher Wolfe
as the only kid who has had a dinosaur named for him. This is, alas, quite
incorrect, as, for example, the species name for _Nedcolbertia justinhoffmani_
also honors a youngster. Not to mention the Aussie ornithischian genus
_Leaellynasaura_. Anyone think of any others?
