Interesting new research on the genetic history of human evolution. A new gene - MYH16 - is broken in humans, weakening our jaw muscles, and making room for a bigger brain. Like I always say, you can't learn anything with your jaws a'flappin'....

Speaking of evolution, check out The Panda's Thumb. Talk about a group blog, this thing has a very impressive roster of scientists blogging about the ongoing debate between science and pseudo-scientific creationism... and it looks like they are loaded for bear. Great stuff!

I am glad somebody caught the "Do on ..."

Maybe I should have written, "Doo on ..."
