75-year-old James Watson, the American biologist who in 1953 shook the world when he co-discovered DNA's structure with Britain's Francis Crick, said he saw stupidity as a genetic disease that should be cured. "

Actually he just said that we should try and help the abysmally dumb, but paraphrasing is so much more fun.

You'll probably have to wait a year or so for my paper on this. I'd do it this weekend, but there's fun to be had.

Yes, that's my lesson for the weekend. Have a good one.
