Re: "Dinosaurs Died Within Hours After Asteroid Hit Earth..."
<Age should be irrelevant to morphological comparisons. But, as Stidham
and Clarke indicate, it is only a jaw, not the whole bird. It LOOKS a lot
like loriids extant today, but it was never applied to BE a loriid.
Stidham himself has never had his work regarded against except by Mayr,
who feels that the _suggestion_ made the study erroneous by nature. Only
Mayr, it seems, thought that Stidham actually said it was a parrot, but
Stidham himself responded by indicating he did not.>
Actually, "Clarke" should be Hope, as in Sylvia Hope.

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.
