Interesting (but misguided) letter to the editor

There is a funny/interesting letter to the editor in one of the local papers out here. It is basically about how an article on Neanderthals is interesting but how more should be written about current topics in evolution, which sounds great. Then the author proceeds to quote Fisher and Morgan regarding human evolution, not the most modern of research to quote. Anyway, the calculation they made I found to be quite interesting ...

  1. Exactly! Who *are* the mutants of today? And will they side with Magneto or Xavier? That's what we all need to know! It's odd that we scientists tend to ignore this important question. At least Stan Lee is there on the ball.
