One of my last entries has prompted a small discussion about inherited genes. Maybe discussion is the wrong word… that is, if you can call two email messages a discussion (one for each participant). This led to my own musing. (When was the last time you used “muse” as a verb?) I feel that I provide an important service to my readers: pointing out the obvious. In that light, here’s my latest nugget of wisdom for the anonymous masses: we are all a genetic chain letter. Some elect not to pass it on, breaking the chain. Others send it to all of their descendants. What’s cool about this chain letter is that we get to add a paragraph before we pass it on.
