New Exotic Particles Found at Fermilab?

Fermilab has seen some anomalous data from their CDF experiment which was recently paperized and is causing a stir across the physics blogosphere (as if physicists needed anything else to assume as spherical). The short of it is that it's potentially an exotic particle, or just a subtle detector quirk. The roundup: the quick and easy summary from Uncertain Principles or the dirty and complex version, redeemed by eye-pleasing graphs at A Quantum Diaries Survivor
