Two new species of large plant eating dinosaurs that lived 76 million years ago have been discovered in Utah. One has the most ornate horn structure of all dinosaurs known to man. Scientists think the structure developed to attract mates and intimidate sexual competitors. The findings have been published in the 9/22/10 online science journal, PLoS ONE.

that's good news! what is funny is the yahoo comment section it seems you cannot talk about dinosaurs without having the religious getting crazy....anyway thanks for the input!!!
Neat! It's interesting that the article made the comparison to deer antlers. I was thinking of the evolutionary relationship between dinos and birds and thought of the horn crest like a feather crest.
What are the odds on how long it takes Ken Ham to get a model of one for his museum and stick a saddle on it?
