Whoa - the carbon footprint story is pretty interesting - and, it will fit into my class nicely. Thanks for doing the legwork on that one for me!

The Lesbos story might also work for my class....

And, how cool is the nutcracker story? It's going to be interesting to see how people start discussing the robusts now.

Yeah on the robustus stuff...tho' it means I have to rework a few exam questions! Damn science, and it's ability to rethink things!!

That's why Ben Stein has won me over, and I'm heading into the creationist camp.

Then I don't have to worry about messy details like robustus, because they're not in my human lineage. Why should I, therefore, give a crap?

I can spend my time on much more concrete, logical pursuits. Like explaining dragons from the Bible.

It's all so simple now.
