	There is no reason to believe that the correlation you found is
impossible.  Take a look at Taylor FJR and Coates D. 1989 The code within
codons Biosystems 22:177-187.

	The authors found a strong correlation with the messenger RNA codon
and amino acid function. Breifly:

	The first base is correlated with the amino acid sythetic pathway.
	The second base is correlated with hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity.
	The third base is correlated with molecular weight.
