New Dmanisi skull -- the news catches up

The story of the new Dmanisi skull hit the American news today. Nothing new compared to my post of two weeks ago, based on reports in the Georgian press.

I guess the AP held the press release until a slow news cycle. Which may have been justified -- no new details, no pictures, no news, right? But it seems to me that there are a few really active science reporters that write stories with background, and beyond that there is a lot of science-reporting-by-press-release.

So I guess in this little corner of science, you'll continue to get the story -- with background -- here before anywhere else.
