There was trouble in my neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas. We--children of parents from Weimar, Texas--called the multiple-legged arthropod that curled up when touched a doodlebug, but the kids next door from Kansas called ant lions doodlebugs. They called our doodlebug a pill bug. There were other problems too, but I've got to go to the library now and review 76 requests for development money. You'd think that I was on a search committee or something.
