I and Don Rosa thought that all the terries and fermies in Barks's
"Land Beneath the Ground" should have the same colour, and not be in
all kinds of colours as they've been in every American colour
printing.  But then our beneath-the-ground expert Wilmer Rivers said
that rocks come in a wide variety of colours, so there's nothing
strange with the terries and fermies being that colourful.  Maybe so,
but I still think of them as having the same colour, because that's
how they looked when *I* first read the story!
