It was news to me, too; but then again, I'm not a paleornithologist. The
current JVP has a little feature on _Titanis walleri_, the Florida
phorusrhacid (-oid?) and there is a ref to Chambers's article in the biblio.
Perhaps that's the one? I gathered from the show that although the claws were
there, so was the fused carpometacarpus...!
