    Well there it is.  Again, all those that I gave families too deserve them
in my opinion.  Also, a lot of the titles are used with other labels a lot of
the time, all I did was change the suffexes.  Also, Ornithomimisauria could
easily become a suborder with common ancestery with the maniraptora, but for
now it's within the maniraptora.  I also believe that birds did evolve from
the Archaeopterigidae in any case if you're wondering.  See ya.

Overheard in The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park while it was at The Pacific
Science Center in Seattle:

Volunteer (to a girl of about ten): "Hey, what do you think this is?"
(refering to a ten inch long, plastic replica of a T. rex tooth)

Girl: "I dunno... Maybe part of Madona's costume?"
