Everyone now and then I come across a post so good that I wish I had written it myself; Matt of the HMNH has posted on such piece of excellent science blogging all about dinosaur furculas.

I’m sure it’ll turn up in tomorrow’s edition of The Boneyard over at microecos, and I wouldn’t be surprised if someone nominated it for the next installment of The Open Laboratory, either.
