Big crawl to land

Page One, New York Times, Thursday April 6. The long-postulated big crawl from the sea to land got a shot in the arm with the lead story: Fossil called missing link from sea to land animals.
In the fishes' forward fins, the scientists found evidence of limbs in the making. There are the beginnings of digits, proto-wrists, elbows and shoulders. The fish also had a flat skull resembling a crocodile's, a neck, ribs and other parts that were similar to four-legged land animals known as tetrapods.

Now, with more belief in yourself than ever, when someone cuts you off in traffic, you may safely launch the invective: Go back to the Sea where you came from!” Intelligent Design proponents can jump in the lake and still be with their own.
