RE: Seitaad: A New Sauropodomorph from the Navajo Sandstone

  In response to my concern over pronounciation, Rebecca Hunt-Foster sent me a 
message (forwarding with permission):

"The name Seitaad ruessi is pronounced SAY-eet-AWD ROO-ess-EYE. It was in the 
press release."

  I had not read the press release, so this is another of those interesting and 
culturally-crossing names, and am quite appreciative of it, even if the native 
Navajo spelling is foreign.
