Please remember that you do not have to be a paleontologist to be a member of
SVP. I got in as a geology student, and am yet but a preparator.
But the solution to Dinoman types performing (with inflatable dino toys, no
less) in your local schools is to EDUCATE YOUR LOCAL EDUCATORS. Turn them on
to the many museums with outreach programs (they come to you instead of having
to transport the kids), videoconference capabilities, or educational loan
collections. In this way schools won't be forced into using folks who should
really be saying "I'm not a paleontologist, but I play one on TV"
