New Dmanisi skull -- the news catches up23 Aug 2005
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.
