Re: [dinosaur] Dinosaurs, Giants of the Vineyard + Oklahoma dinosaurs + Russian ichthyornithid + more




I didn't include a news item that was making the rounds of the internet yesterday--a supposed article from the Village Voice interviewing players with the New York Mets baseball team about their favorite dinosaurs in 1968. It's a hoax, but amusing:

Also, a typo correction--"be" got dropped in the last sentence:


Darf man Dinoskelette ausstellen oder haben sie «Anrecht auf Grabesruhe»? 

[Should dinosaur skeletons be exhibited or do they have a right to "peace of the grave"?]
(in German)

(If they do, a lot of dinosaur skeletons will have to be taken down and reburied...)

In response to the question of "sensitive  topics in a museum" for International Museum Day on May 21, the Dinosauriermuseum Frick in Switzerland  posed this question:

Darf man Dinoskelette ausstellen oder haben sie «Anrecht auf Grabesruhe»?
