"Bully for Brontosaurus!"

That was Stephen Jay Gould's title for an essay in which he argued that some things should be called just what they are called and a brontosaurus is a brontosaurus.  Well, everyone thought it was an apatosaurus, mislabeled.  Turns out it's not.

Bronto is back!

Classic AMNH brontosaur skeleton (with, somehow, the skull of a brachiosaur...) 

Now we can get back to arguing whether Pluto should be called a planet.  (HINT: Yes)
