yea yea yea ... first lets see them publish their experiment and their 
analysis online (this afternoon, so they have promised) and the 
mechanism for neutrino emission to see how they did things and where 
they get their "error analysis" from before we start cheering...

also, analysis of neutrino arrival times from Supernova  SN1987A have 
very strong and opposite conclusion.

the hype is, as usual, thunderous. unbeknownst to many is that 
physicists are always looking for ways to break Lorentz invariance -- 
the fancy way of talking about  einstein's result  -- and the team 
announcing this result has been working in this area for years.

the fun continues ...
