These articles always drop the same famous names, although there isn't any
corroboration on their "collections". You would think that they would be
outwardly supportive of paleontology if they were such big fossil fans.

"Dinosaur Wars" is the cover story for  the April 2009 issue of
Smithsonian Magazine. This is a longer  piece on commercial and
illegal collecting of vertebrate fossils,  Hollywood stars who are
big collectors of fossils,  etc.

Notable quote:
"The real action, however, is in the  big vertebrates: dinosaurs that
roamed the earth between 65  million and 220 million years ago. These
are the specimens  attracting the high rollers—serious collectors.
Actors Harrison  Ford and Nicolas Cage, for example, are rumored to
have  impressive collections."
