For what it's worth...a zander is a species of fish (also known as a
pikeperch, Stizostedion lucioperca)...that's what comes from working on an
ecology database...

cheers

Thank you, Maarten & Danny for clearing that up.

I think the reference Kirk is trying to make is that of the evil emperor
trying to stamp out trouble-making elements.  What with Bush being the
emperor and Saddam Hussein dwelling in a sandy place, I think that must be
it.

For further info, I did ask the Dutch-speaking decorator and he also said
that "zander" just meant "sand".  He also emphasised that "zander" is
pronounced "sonder" to us English-types! :-)

Cheers,
Clive
