While it’s big news (WOW! A link on Drudge! *LOL*), the BIG STORY in the NYT, today, “Researchers Say Intelligence and Diseases May Be Linked in Ashkenazic Genes” was old hat to some of us who frequently lurk (and infrequently participate) on an online discussion—what? Place? Room? Site? hard to categorize this one—at Jerry Pournelle‘s place. Greg Cochoran, among others, has been answering questions on this topic there for years.
It’s not news, except to the New York Times.
Drop in over there. You may be surprised atthe range of topics dealt with. Arguments aplenty, as long as they are well-reasoned. You may become one of the 150,000 or so regular visitors… maybe even a participant.
