Evolutionary psychology received a bit of boost last week. Well, actually it was a feminist attack by Natalie Angier in the New York Times Sunday Magazine section, Feb. 21, 1999. (As Dolly Parton once quipped: "A bad reputation is better than none.") The title of her opinion/editorial: Men, Women, Sex and Darwin. She's written a few books, and has received a few awards concerning feminist issues. The article most likely was meant to coincide with the publication of her new book, which is due to be released in April, 99. She did a pretty good job of attacking the masculine bias in our some of our male colleagues studies, and as such, I enjoyed reading the piece. But, the best part, is that Evolution's Voyage is standing right where she is heading with her arguments after the science has its turn to rebut. Welcome aboard Natalie, and enjoy the Voyage. Because I think that the article is a important one due to my attempt of hearing more of female gender's role as a way of making this planet a better place, I have placed a link here for you to read the article. Permission to use the article from the New York Times, will be requested. Go to: Men, Women, Sex & Darwin.

I usually don't comment on political issues, but this week was exceptional. It is not every week that a verdict on the removal of our President takes place in the U.S. Senate. The final outcome was that our system of government works as the Founding Fathers intended. We are truly a democratic nation and not a parliamentary system controlled by a select few. Our nation will become stronger from the experience.

Anyone who is a regular visitor to our web site may notice a few changes on the front page. I've been doing a lot of work behind the scene to make the site even larger and worth returning to more often. I've begun to make a note of videos that I think that readers of this site may like to purchase through our association with Amazon.com. I should have this small video store open by this week's end. Also, I have dragged out my glossary from the early days of 1995 and will begin to work on increasing the words that are related to evolution and psychology. Plus, of course, I continue to work on THE BOOK.
