Hobbit Update

Joshua gets his second no-prize of the day for bringing us the latest developments in research on the Flores "hobbit people". This time the team of scientists who think the hobbit is just a microcephalic Homo sapien make their stand, producing all the evidence they think they need to prove their point. The reaction is what you'd expect... a complete refutation by the other side.

As far as I know, it's been awhile since physical anth has gone through a journal-driven scrum quite this intense. It's sort of like watching gladiators fight, stuck in a vat of molasses. Should be interesting!
