      A 3million year old skeleton was found and scientists spent 20 years painstakingly extracting the fossil from the surrounding rock before unveiling it today.

      Interesting discovery.

      Scientists believe this shows humankind's ancestors were spread across a far wider area of Africa than had previously thought. It also suggests there were a diverse number of species.

          The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government's position.[2] The Act was passed following George Logan's unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony.

          Only two people have ever been indicted for violating the Act's provisions.[3]However, no person has ever been convicted of violating the Act.[4]

              How to avoid scrapes.

              The structure meant is certainly not 'form' in the conventional sense in which we think of form as a kind of envelope which 'contains' the 'content.' The structure obviously is everywhere conditioned by the nature of the material which goes into the poem. The nature of the material sets the problem to be solved, and the solution is the ordering of the material...The relationship between the intellectual and the non-intellectual elements in a poem is actually far more intimate than the conventional accounts would represent it to be: the relationship is not that of an idea 'wrapped in emotion' or a 'prose-sense decorated by sensuous imagery.

              New Criticism | Anglo-American Literary Criticism

              A type of "Poetic Justice" - one that's almost forgotten.

              Poetic form and content could not be separated, since the experience of reading the particular words of a poem, including its unresolved tensions, is the poem’s “meaning.” As a result, any rewording of a poem’s language alters its content, a view articulated in the phrase “the heresy of paraphrase,” which was coined by Brooks in his The Well Wrought Urn(1947).

              And the "Occam's Razor" (parenthesis or "quotation marks") that should be applied to sources of discussion.

              Formalism is a school of literary criticism and literary theory having mainly to do with structural purposes of a particular text. It is the study of a text without taking into account any outside influence. Formalism rejects (or sometimes simply "brackets", i.e., ignores for the purpose of analysis) notions of culture or societal influence, authorship, and content, and instead focuses on modes, genres, discourse, and forms.
