Heh heh,

  I think it's Binomial-nomenclature (I know it's spelled wrong):)  Too 
many classes in latin and science(although science wasn't too bad). 
Anyways, I was in a discussion with some people yesterday and they were 
still convinced that large mouth bass are in the cichla nomenclature. I 
dunno when it was changed or who did it, but it is interesting.  

                                        Later all,
