I have a more direct question. While researching _Hesperosaurus mjosi_, I
came across an explanation of the name to the effect of "...western
reptile and Ron Mjosi the collector.">

  As I recall, the name does honor Ronald G. Mjos, not "Mjosi." The name
is pronounced as in "moose," so the epithet is "moose-ee." "Mjos's western
lizard," generally.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
