[geek] 30-second science blogging - "Strange fossil defies grouping"

A strange 525 million-year-old fossil creature is baffling scientists because it does not fit neatly into any existing animal groups.
How cool is that? Unfortunately, I fear that this very legitimate process of scientific debate will be siezed upon by those people seeking to create a very different debate where none exists. It is also unfortunate that those people will be able to exploit the American public's general ignorance about the scientific process, and will be able to engender confusion and doubt where none should exist.
