  Isn't that idiotic. But no worse than that the National Aboriginal
Community Controlled Health Organisation used a Bald Eagle in their EMBLEM.
I am not sure if they have fixed this after I complained to them about this,
five years ago.


  The last thing I worked on, before coming to my senses and leaving work,
was a remote sensing research project called Project Falcon. It had as an
emblem an artist's impression of a raptor. The bird had the beak of an
Eagle, the wings of a Hawk and a tail with 13 retrices. For a talk I had to
give on my part of the project I used a clip art picture of a jet aeroplane
on an overhead. The project manager complained that it wasn't a Cessna,
which is what we were using for the project. I retorted that the 'plane I
used more closely resembled a Cessna than his emblem did a Falcon!
