Not _Sinosauropteryx_

    Greetings all,
        I got a chance to talk to Mike Skrepnick on the weekend, and 
it would appear that our labelling the "Chinese Feathered Theropod" 
as _Sinosauroptryx prima_ is a bit premature. Mike came down on me 
pretty hard, stating something to the effect of "the guy who found it 
is an invertebrate palaeontologist who has no business naming the 
thing" and that the name will probably be changed once the real paper 
on it is out. And just when I figured out how to say it too!:-)...
