A Story in Inaccurate Dinosaurs . . . Buried

I love the various little New York Times op-art pieces that pop up every once and awhile.  I find a particular degree of fondness for said op-art pieces when they include a historical story about the creation of dinosaur models and how Tammany Hall saw them destroyed and supposedly buried in Central Park.  Dear Mr. James Stevenson, thank you for your contribution to art, history, and the love and fascination brought about by dinosaurs.
