Best "Arsenic and Odd Life" coverage

Since there were so many smart people paying attention to yesterday's much-anticipated news conference about organisms from Mono Lake that can use arsenic in place of phosphorus, I chose to focus my attention elsewhere. So last night I asked via Twitter for recommendations for articles that did the best job explaining the significance of the work, by people who actually read the relevant paper in Science: "A Bacterium That Can Grow by Using Arsenic Instead of Phosphorus," by Felisa Wolfe-Simon et al. Here are the recommended articles; enjoy!
