Back to Flores: Why "Hobbits?"

My previous post gives more details on the discovery of Homo floresensis. One thing I did not mention was the ridiculous common name given to the creature discovered. The researchers are call their staggering H. floresensis find a "hobbit."

What a way to belittle what will perhaps be your life's greatest acheivement.
