Time magazine web site has the story, The Higgs Boson: Have Scientists Found the Mystery Particle?
“I don’t think there’s any place for the Higgs to hide,” Fermilab physicist Rob Roser told the Associated Press. “We’ll know the answer one way or another by the end of 2012.”
The article does have a nice layperson’s explanation of the Higgs, if you can believe what you read in Time. I stopped reading Time when I realized they cared more about the aesthetics of the pages of the magazine than they cared about the truth of the magazine.
