        Speaking of this book, I've been meaning to ask for a while, does
anyone know what is up with Gregory Paul's illustrations in that volume? 
They are all tilted up at about a thirty-degree angle at the hip, and it's
not that the diagrams were rotated, it looks like someone actually
retouched them to be in a more godzilla-like pose. (I guess Greg P. is off
in conference-land, so I'll ask all of you, since by the time he gets back,
I should be gone (hold your applause, please).)
