Coffee!! Oh, so now Darwinism explains why you think SHE'S beautiful? Where's my rolling pin?

In "Joke science" (Sunday Spectator, August 2, 2009), David Warren writes,
One of the great attractions of popular Darwinism, as a financial investment, is its appeal to what we in the media refer to, in our jaded way, as the "tabloid audience." That is to say people who, through no fault of their own (lack of education, native dullness, mental injury, etc.) are extremely credulous. You can sell stuff to them that you just couldn't sell to -- you know, "people like us."

From another point of view, it may be a misfortune that our schools and media have been working, for decades now, on expanding this "tabloid audience." But that has been a subject for many other days. Today we're only looking at the business angle.

The incredible tabloid Darwinian story of this last week was about the evolution of beautiful women.

Ben Stein fired at New York Times

Apparently, the New York Times, on which there is a death watch - along with its acquisition , the Boston Globe, dumped Ben Stein, the key sponsor of the Expelled movie, as a columnist.

They must have been just waiting for ages to do that. Conflict of interest is cited. Personally, I think he is better off without them, as well as versa vice.
