got a Euthalia, go poke it with your finger. You owe it to all of us". 

There seems to be some misunderstanding by Anne Kilmer regarding my
critique of purpose. I am not suggesting that the spikes may not have a
 function. I am, however, separating defense from purpose. So I owe no-one
anything in this respect.
