      Oh yeah, I've been all over that Sasquatch DNA saga. Fortunately, a lot of DNA specialists and biological anthropologists have been all over it as well. Bad pseudoscience. I mentioned it a bit in my AN column on Bigfoot a few months ago, but the saga goes on. The researchers even bought a periodical so they could publish (since no legitimate would touch such sloppy research). It reminds me a lot of creation science and conspiracy theory.

      Bob et al:
      I am sure you saw the article about the biologist in East Texas who has 'identified Sasquatch (or our local Boggy Creek critter or whatever) DNA,' last November. I used it as a critical thinking exercise for my class in Physical Anthropology, and it went over quite well. I would love to have the Sasquatch recipe... it makes me wonder if we should not add a Sasquatch stew cook off to our annual SACC events. The mind boggles at the possibilities......

      Kip, and others interested in beer:

      I did tweet about the NYT article when it first appeared some days ago. It has a great graphic, but there really isn't anything new to report. The NYT piece focusses on an article by Hayden et al. That article was published on-line early in 2012 and I mentioned it in my AN column focussing on beer last Feb or March. That column is now retrievable through Anthrosource now.

      Hayden is very big on 'feasting the archaeological record' these days, and sees feasting as a driving force of many things, including the domestication of plants and animals. Archaeologists have long considered that the domestication of plants and animals may have had something to do with alcohol, and as one wag puts it... "Cities developed so that waiters would know where to find us."

      Because it is St Patrick's Day, I decided to make an Irish Stew with Guinness for dinner. I couldn't find any Guinness so used some Sasquatch Stout I had on hand instead. Now, apparently, I have created a fabulous new recipe for Sasquatch Stew. No Sasquatch were harmed in the making of the stew.

      Bob

      I am reading the commentary on the current direction of education with interest and have involved in this for a while in California. Thanks much.

      I was surprised that no one sent this link (not about education, but on the recurring beer theme)
