>From today's CNN headline news:

An analysis of more than 200 studies has concluded that a person's genes
account for only about half the factors that determine intelligence quotient,
or I.Q. The analysis suggests that conditions during prenatal development,
such as inadequate care, may play a more significant role than previously
thought. The findings, published in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature,
undercut the controversial 1994 book "The Bell Curve," which gave more weight
to genetics.

And for my own part:

Why waste time even discussing, much less attempting to justify, why some
individuals treat some other individuals badly? Don't do it yourself,
and if it's worth it to you, try to get them to stop.
