Somebody a few weeks ago posted a well-written National Geographic online 
article about Rob's work, and the respones of other paleontologists to it.  I 
don't recall the URL, but it is worth reading.  Some other researchers bring up 
interesting points, and I hope that Rob soon addresses them in a full length 
paper!  Please, Rob! :-)
