There is no 'missing link'.
The missing link is either an over-simplification of a children's explanation of evolution or a creationist device to attack it (depending on how charitable you feel)

The salary is two horses, some rope, and a few guys handy with their shovels. The only reason people want a missing link is so they can see who makes the strongest rope.

Yes, that's a better way of putting it: there's always another missing link.

Even if there's no missing link, it's a very useful concept!!
