Sinosauropteryx paper

The big paper on Sinosauropteryx is out in today's Nature, prompting a few
press reports. It's well worth reading if you've been following the origin
of birds debate. It doesn't have a definitive answer to the question of
what _Are_ those things on Sinosauropteryx, but it's a careful analysis
full of details.

There's also a short letter on a fingery fish fin with clear amphibian
connections. If you want to check the Philadelphia Inquirer story about it,
on line today (Jan 8), try http://www.phillynews.com which shows it on the
opening page. The reference given in an earlier message doesn't work,
although that's what my brower shows, too.
