Re: Theory Sez Flight Evolution Linked To Parental Care

Thanks, Jeff, you're a class act. And believe me, I wasn't minimizing the 
importance of news coverage of such matters. It is an important part of the 
process of public awareness-building. Just think, if brooding-to-flight is 
verified, someday, somehow, your news article will stand out as hands-down 
the earliest mention of it. In exhaustive literature searching, I have yet to 
see the concept even mentioned before our '98 presentation and your note.
