@ClintAugust of KGB and KOGO called in to talk about a disconcerting issue: Why Rady's Children's Hospital is asking little kids whether or not they're having suicidal thoughts... "IS IT APPROPRIATE FOR A DOCTOR TO ASK YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER ABOUT SUICIDAL THOUGHTS IF IT'S UNRELATED TO THE VISIT?" This is what Clint asked after it happened to his child. And his child was 9. How young do they ask? WHY do they ask?
Human intelligence is declining according to Stanford geneticist. The author makes an incredibly stellar point: "I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas, and a clear-sighted view of important issues. Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues. I would also make this wager for the ancient inhabitants of Africa, Asia, India or the Americas, of perhaps 2000–6000 years ago. The basis for my wager comes from new developments in genetics, anthropology, and neurobiology that make a clear prediction that our intellectual and emotional abilities are genetically surprisingly fragile."
