Boy Corrects the Smithsonian

At the Tower of Time, the exhibit referred to the Precambrian Era. The eleven–year–old boy knew that Precambrian did not have "Era" tagged onto the end. Bothered by the mistake the boy left a note on a comment card never expecting to hear back from the world famous museum. Surprisingly, they did write him back telling him he was "spot on" and that the museum was changing the error.
