Re: Local News Story on Matthew Carrano

Actually, the joke about it being the "brontosaurus of paleontology jobs" and 
"it's the job that was mistaken for a previously known and described job" 
isn't far from the truth.  The actual _Tyrannosaurus rex_ version of this job 
was announced about a year before the current version but then was withdrawn 
and revised.  The original job was meant to attract the very top echelon in 
paleontology and had a much higher salary and somewhat different duties.  

Just because we can, here, from Vrtpaleo, is the announcement for the job 
that Matt Carrano will fill.
