So Does This Mean Six More Months of John Kerry?
Fred Ramsey of Webster Books invited me over to his place for the Super Bowl, along with the Morrow clan, and a bunch of Fred's friends, some of whom I knew, and others, not so much. As usual with Fred occasions, I was the most conservative person in the bunch; this time I noticed that I was the only adult without glasses, as well. We got into a discussion of what selects for weak eyesight among book people; some held for an association of intelligence genes with nearsightedness genes. I, as the only representative of unassisted sight in the bunch, had to defend the tribe. I argued that it was due to the more-educated classes' willingness to use baby formula, which is missing a number of trace hormones necessary for the proper development of good eyesight.
