A news story about the new(-ish) paper on the possibility that the fine-structure constant (a dimensionless ratio involving the electron charge, the speed of light, and Planck's constant) is not only changing in time, but changing is different ways in different parts of the universe.

This is notable not just because it would be a big deal if true, but because it quotes me saying skeptical things about the measurement (along with people who actually know a lot about astronomy...). Sadly, it gets the name of my employer wrong, but I emailed the author, so it might get fixed. And anyway, they spelled my name right...
