Susan: Sorry about the date I got that mixed up. I had just reread the
original article on A. ramidusaand it was still in my mind. My goof.

As for the synapomorphies I will have to fish out a paper from my Human
Evolution class so give my a little time. I do remember that the
information came from Klein's book "The Human Career" and he referenced
another paper. I'll get it together and get back in a few days.
