Archeologists have been learning that the famous "Lucy" skeleton - the remains of the so called First Woman includes one vertebrae from a baboon.  The remaining bones appear to be all hers - but one of these was a different size than the others.  
So many people have studied these bones but like many things it seems hundreds saw the vertebrae as they expected it to be so difference in size and shape not noticed. Young archeologists have studied and presented their findings at international conference I have a picture of gloating youth and red faced older scientists.

In another First Woman piece of news Hilary Clinton has announced she will put herself forward  as Democratic candidate for U.S. presidency.   No other strong contender - with Jed Bush looking like the Republican candidate it could be a Presidential campaign that is Bush against Clinton - kind of déjà Vue
