Since I'm about to give up on politics, I think THiS is excellent news!! T. Rex Protein "Confirms" Bird-Dinosaur Link
A new study of ancient proteins retrieved from a Tyranosaurus rex fossil confirms the long-hypothesized evolutionary connection between dinosaurs and modern birds, experts say.I'm going to have plenty of time to complete my screenplay!
The finding is the first molecular evidence that birds, not lizards or other reptiles, are the closest living relatives of dinosaurs, the researchers note.
And just think of all the money I won't be contributing to presidential campaigns. I guess every scorched earth campaign has a silver lining. Or something.
Oh, never mind. Read the article, the science is fascinating. And next time you eat fried chicken, think of poor old T-Rex.
