   Just a reminder to everybody that Gregory Paul has already ventured an
opinion on Ruben et al's conclusions.  You can refresh your memory either in
the archives or in my Journal.

   I also note from the article,

   "In their article on dinosaur lungs, Ruben and his
           collaborators looked at two fossils of the small
           dinosaur Sinosauropteryx, which caught a lot of
           attention earlier this year because it appears to
           have feathers."

   Is this claim (made, I'm assuming, by the author of the article) true?
Last news I have is that Ruben was working from photographs.
