Damn, I wish I'd entered your contest. I could blame it on the motel with no internet, but I'll shoulder the blame. Thanks for looking out for us science-illiterates who think that phylum is a kind of cheese. My personal burden is trying to bring "mitochondria" into common usage. You're my ally. Watch out for it.
