Re: "Inside the Hidden Kingdom" - the Royal Ontario Museum

When did it become their task to have to create displays like that because the kiddos have no imagination to see a charging tyrannosaur without actually having to see it? Besides, HP Pickering, how would you enjoy it if you had half-a-dozen people watching you work on something serious like that? When it's lowered to such a level, it sort of degrades it to a circus... just my opinion, mind you.
