What is this, International Everything That's Not Important To Me Is 
Garbage And The People Who Work On It Are Assholes Week? I hate to be 
the one to break it to you, Ken, but a lot of us are capable of working 
on and thinking about more than one thing at a time. And it seems ironic 
that you should complain about people wanting to converse accurately 
about biodiversity (yes, it's true, we don't just make up the names, 
they are tied to the actual diversity of organisms) when it seems that a 
lack of accurate communication about the functional state of the blowout 
preventer led to the BP disaster.
