This is great. I clipped an article from the paper showing the new logo.
My only reservation is that people will come to know "Raptors" as
one particular species (of course, I guess a certain movie has pretty much

A friend of mine told me that one of the alternatives proposed was:
        "Torontosaurus Rex"
