Sick today, so I only managed to get part of the column done. Check back later today or tomorrow morning for the real column, and my apologies.

In the meantime, here's a short science fiction story someone passed on, drawn by Steve Ditko for Charlton Comics in the 1950s and written by who knows. It's a story so clever only someone completely unaware of genetics and archeology could have come up with it. Hilariously unbelievable, not to mention ridiculously politically incorrect in this day and age, though I suspect the writer intended it to be a compliment to the Chinese...

This will vanish when the real column shows up. See you then.
