Excavating the Science Problems of "Jurassic Park"

Slate's Brian Switek writes an entire article to ostensibly suggest the biggest "science problem" that. paleontologists have with Jurassic Park is regarding the dig site scene early in the movie. The majority of the piece reads like "Dino Digging for Dummies", but my love of the movie encourages me to hate it a little less.

I studied Anthropology in college, and since most of my focus fell on the cultural side, I can tell you that this sort of "analysis and research" is the signal of a species in decline.
