Hobbit Update

The New York Times did a better job with the Homo floresiensis story, using the side-by-side skulls photo for the front page and drawing females for both the "hobbit" and the normal human in the graphic on the jump. I do have one small nit to pick, though. The story says "They were a downsized version of Homo erectus, the eastern cousin of the Neanderthals of Europe." From what I understand, Neanderthals are more closely related to modern humans than to Homo erectus -- some people even classify them as a subspecies of Homo sapiens.
