cure stupidity, ugliness, says watson

In a fifty-years-since-discovery-of-DNA-structure interview airing on British television, James Watson (still head of Cold Spring Harbor) says low intelligence is genetically inheirited, and that it's the duty of molecular biologists to figure out how to eliminate it. And then he vanished in a puff of logic. Oh, wait, that's a different joke...

He also wants to get rid of the ugly women -- err, I mean, "girls"; apparently ugly men aren't objectionable to him.

And now I have to go out and get my irony meter re-calibrated, as it's suddenly gotten all wonky from overload.
