A Texas veterinarian-researcher claims to have shown that the elusive creature known as Bigfootor Sasquatch is a human hybrid, descended from human females who mated with males of “an unknown hominin species.”  In a statement released on Saturday, Melba S. Ketchum said that her conclusions emerged after she sequenced samples of purported Sasquatch DNA. Mitochondrial DNA in the samples, which offspring inherit from their mothers, was identical...

Here's more proof that Bigfoot is really, really, truly real: There are new videos! But if the morning-news anchors at WTKR in Norfolk, Va., are any guide, the new evidence may not be winning over skeptics that huge, furry, bipedal demihumans have been stalking around North America, perpetually evading capture and general scientific credibility for decades. "Sweet baby Jesus in the manger, I didn't think I was going to make it," said anchor Jessica Larche , after struggling to give straight narration over fuzzy night-vision clips purporting to show a Bigfoot walking around in the distance and closer-up shots of a partially obscured creature sleeping or appearing to look at the camera.

Segments from Friday's show:When NPR announced that it would close down its daily call-in show “Talk of the Nation” in July, science fans across the country wondered about the fate of “Science Friday,” the program that takes the TOTN time slot once a week. They will be happy to know that their two-hour dose of science news and discussion will remain on the air. “Science Friday will continue as an independent program, and will retain its Friday 2-4 Eastern Time broadcast spot,” read a statement posted on the Science Friday Initiative website.

Benilde Little, in her first novel, "Good Hair," has written what some might consider an oxymoron: a black comedy of manners. Contrary to what's normally seen of black Americans in the mainstream media, where crack and guns are endemic, the only things that come out blazing here are diamond engagement rings--inherited whoppers, at that. And the cracks are hairline, in beloved Limoges passed down through generations.

Even a true believer in Bigfoot concedes that the tabloids sometimes get carried away: "HUGE BIGFOOT MONSTER TERRORIZES THE ROCKIES! It stunk like a sewer, roared like a lion and clutched the leg of an animal in its hand." " 'BIGFOOT ATTACKED US!' Blood-Crazed Creature Savages Camera Crew and Pounds 2-Ton Truck Into Junkyard Scrap." Paul Freeman smiles at the mention of such outlandish reports. He collects them and keeps the clippings in a cardboard box.

Next to a lifelike replica of a giant ape head, the believers milled around tables Saturday covered with casts of large footprints, books about nature's mysteries and T-shirts proclaiming "Bigfoot: Often Imitated, Never Invalidated." While they can have a sense of humor about it, the search for the legendary sasquatch is no joke for many of the nearly 400 people who came here to discuss the latest sightings and tracking techniques at the Texas Bigfoot Conference.
