Re "'In God We Trust' license plates may soon come to Utah" (Tribune, Oct. 24):

Why don't we put dinosaurs on Utah license plates? They are symbolic of the state. Kids love them. Besides, there's actual scientific proof that they existed.

Their fossils and the cause of their disappearance are excellent reminders of what too many harmful elements in our atmosphere can do to an existing population on Earth.
