Response I: Humorous) "Hey, Kevin and Kevin," said Jacques. "We've got a
possible diapsid turtle ancestor. Time to push it into the Vault next to
the Ark of the Covenant."
"Help!! Help!!" cried the little fossil. "I'm being surpressed!"
Response II: More serious) You know, memory is often less distinct than one
might think. Care to try a little library work and back up this comment
with data? Thanks in advance,
