An honest-to-goodness "missing link" (or branch or something like that!)

You know how the creationist fundamentalists are always saying that the absence of transitional fossils is evidence against evolution? Well, that's never been true, of course. There are scads of transitional fossils. But a particularly spectacular one has recently been found (recently as these things go, of course.) I recommend that you take a look at a delightful little article entitled "Move over Lucy, Ardipithecus is coming to town!" (The information about the feet just blows me away!)

And think about saving it. Who knows? It might really come in handy one day.
