<So I'm hopping through Russell and Dong (1994) as part of a personal
review of segnosaurs and I notice a typo and I need some help
understanding it.  So, if those of you with a copy of this paper would
turn to page 2121 and look on the continued paragraph:
"(8) rectangular buttress from metacarpal underlies metacarpal II">

  An assumption of metacarpal one is correct, as this forms a broad flange
that underlies the palmar (i.e., ventral) surface of metacarpal two.
Metacarpal three is also ventrally butressed by the second metacarpal, but
not by such an expansive "flange."

  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.
