The study showing up in the WSJ is very very positive news for the paleo diet. I am firm in my belief that this grassroots effort that lives here and in other places can change medicine......many here believe its n=1 because my profession is closed minded and dogmatic. I have seen over the last three years remarkable change at the institutional level. What say you paleo hacks about this latest development?

The SAD suspension of disbelief can only persist for so long in the face of overwhelming evidence and positive experience. Similarly, there's nothing even counter-intuitive about paleo unless you have a dogmatic attachment to the various false hypotheses of the last 50 years.
Specific to that article, I think the relatively recent changes to most wheat have increased its potency as an agent of disease several times over. I'm sure emmer and einkorn have enough gluten and WGA to do damage, but it's nowhere near as bad as the current iterations.
