Hominid Skull Follow-Up

BBC News also has this follow-up story on the new hominid find I wrote up a few days ago. What you're seeing here is classic, absolutely classic back-biting that is positively endemic to the field. What will happen now is a series of slow-motion arguments as each side takes pot shots at the other through journal and book publications. The best one of these I ever saw was the Leaky vs. Johansen battle in the mid 80s.

But eventually their bickering will lead to a greater understanding of the truth. It's the process that matters, not the personalities.
