I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

Off the Internet, Everyone!
I will admit to feeling a twinge of left-wing elitism in calling PF out on the glurge. I probably wouldn't have if I hadn't just that very day overheard PF explaining to her child that the dinosaur exhibit we were attending illustrated but a theory of the earth's history, for surely dinosaurs would have coexisted with humans in the garden of Eden.
I just really wanted someone to SEE WHAT I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IN ARIZONA!
