Neanderthals, Here, There, and Yonder

According to Professor Svante Paabo, quoted in a BBC Daily News article by Paul Rincon, Neanderthals “are not totally extinct, in some of us they live on–a little bit.” I’m sure many of us have been long convinced of this, whether or not scientists agreed, and are now ecstatic at the new possibilities for individual DNA analysis and genealogical research. The Neanderthal characters in commericals are popular, and now probably having a little Neanderthal in your family tree will be most desirable. (I wouldn’t mind.) Maybe that will be the new elite group. Or … heaven forbid . . . the “other.” (Can’t make the link to the article.)
