Oh, geez, Ty, don't let that happen too often. Someone may use it against

Well, more politically sensitive than PC I think. Losing the old name was
probably justified. If it was called something like niggerfish I don't
think there would be too much debate about the need for a change. I'm just
not fond of the new name expecially when there are so many other fishes
with equally bad common names. Chris named several.
