"Feathers are flying once again over Chinese fossils
used to back the theory that birds descended from
dinosaurs.

Prof Theagarten Lingham-Soliar at the University of
KwaZulu Natal, claims today to have "refuted" a
suggestion that primitive bristle-like structures
that adorn the tail of Psittacosaurus are prototype
feathers, as claimed by those seeking evidence to back
the widely accepted idea of avian origins."

I don't know what's worse - the claim that feathers
are really of key importance regarding the ancestry of
birds, or implying that birds are descended from
ornithischians.
