AP Headline: “Skull Suggests Human-Neanderthal Link”

From the story:

Dr. Richard Potts of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History noted that the skull represents the earliest modern human ever found in Europe.

It’s a big deal in that sense, he said, but the combination of characteristics don’t necessarily indicate interbreeding between populations.

Overall there is no strong evidence for mixing of Neanderthal and modern human populations and “this doesn’t add any,” said Potts, who wasn’t part of the research team.

None of the features cited as unusual in modern humans is exclusively Neanderthal, Potts said. Rather, they could be features passed down from earlier populations in Africa.

In other words, as Roseanne Rosanna Danna would put it,  “Never mind.”

UPDATE:  It wasn’t RRD.  It was Emily Litella.  Never mind.
