Re: Dinosaur-bird link on 30 Rock

"In the long run, I think "fish" should be restricted to
Actinopterygii. It's already slowly retreating from the
chondrichthyans in my impression."

I've felt that way for nigh on a decade now, and I couldn't agree
more. 40,000+ species is a pretty damn good chunk of taxonomic and
ecological diversity to bear that particular banner.

I'm more upset by the fact that mammals are apparently reptiliomorphs.
