This is a sort of good news, bad news story. First, the good news. I've had another comment published in Science. Now the bad news. I submitted it as a Letter to the Editor. I'm beginning to get the feeling that they don't want criticism in their Letters, only value added kinds of comments. That's not [as we used to say] my thing. Ah, well.
It's nothing you haven't seen before. It's just a succinct balloon-bursting of the dating in the Wilkins et al. paper on 500,000 year old spear points at Kathu Pan 1, South Africa. I don't know if it's behind a pay-wall. It's here, if you're interested. I've already written to them hoping they can clean up the glitchy quote marks around the first occurrence of 'spring vent' in the first paragraph.
