    I'm actually enjoying seeing how quickly this story is being spread around the internet. What would have ordinarily been just another piece of evidence added to what has already been accumulated in support of evolution, I suppose the timing of this discovery has gained this one great popularity on the internet, being touted as "THE" missing link, when it's just another link. But, I'm glad to hear news showing support for rather than ignorance of evolution for a change.

    I was also pleased hearing this discovery discusssed on NPR. They mentioned they had a high expectation of finding a fossil record of this type, at their chosen site location.
