A New Market For Fowl Supper Tickets, Pickup Trucks, And Rider Gear

The New Yorker has a real fascinating story about a York University professor who has been studying the learning and social habits of endangered orangutans in the wild. Of course, this has to be mentioned …

“I grew up in rural Saskatchewan,” (Anne) Russon, who now works and teaches at York University, in Toronto, told me. “And, for me, that is exactly what orangutan social life is like. There are communities, but they are very broadly dispersed. It might be fifteen miles to your cousin’s place, or another twenty miles to the next nearest relative, but everybody knows everybody.”

Pardon me while I go pick the fleas off Brad Wall.
