Nancy LeTourneau's big picture look at politics and life
Excellent sentiment, poorly chosen example. Should've used mitochondrial eve instead.
A good suggestion, sheriff....but sadly, how many people even understand the concept of mitochondrial eve? Granted, I know of it because of my background in biology (and it was the main idea behind the science fiction/horror novel PARASITE EVE), but not many would know of or even understand the idea.Still, you are right on about the sentiment. :)
