Warning signs

Background: One of my minor job responsibilities is to look over the weekly lists of newly-approved Library of Congress subject headings to note any headings which are of special interest to our library.

The Event: Today, I was looking at a list of terms approved in March, when I came across the subject "Divided-power rings."

My Immediate Reaction: Like the Green Lantern?

The Actual Meaning: Something to do with commutative algebra.

Conclusion: I may be overdosing on comics, lately.

Seems like a perfectly normal immediate reaction to me.

Trevor - Sure. Or Captain Planet and the Planeteers. Why isn't there a subject heading for this?
