On a different note - did y'all see the short article in National
Geographic about the "Archaeoraptor" affair? I took issue with some
aspects, but it seems to have done a relatively decent job of explaining
what happened and what went wrong.
I did see it and I felt the same way you did. I thought a lot of it seemed
to be finger pointing. I am sure it was damage control, but it is a
perfect example of why we should wait for careful science to take its
course. There is a reason Dr. Holtz has us all chanting "wait for the
paper". "Archaeoraptor" just became the poster-child for this mantra.
