        Dear listfolk,

        Two passages called my attention in that article. First, is that "The results have not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal." Second is the closing paragraph, excerpted below:��

        ���Lalueza-Fox declined to discuss his team���s work, but he cautions against making too many assumptions about the peopling of Europe using just a handful of ancient genomes from a single time period. ���It���s going to be lots of different migrations and movements,��� he says. ���There���s going to be plenty of room for investigation in the next few years.������
        I think that those investigations about the genetic ancestry of Europeans are interesting, informative and all, but it does not seems that genetic evidence has much to add to historical linguistics any more than genes may determine a cultural trait.

        The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following:
        Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a
        rabbit on the road.  Being sentimental is when the same driver, when
        swerving away from the rabbit hits a pedestrian.
