Topic: DEAD BATTERIES FOR DARWIN'S RADIO

Have just read "Darwin's Radio". Fascinating stuff, but can we really believe that a scientist of Kaye's caliber would not have anticipated the persecution she and her husband and child would suffer, having been so determined to become pregnant? And her outcry, "I felt like a leper. Worse, like a nigger."

Where's the scientific background to excuse that regrettable cry of self-pity and bigotry?

Kaye is human and discouraged and tired. As for anticipating problems--since when did that stop scientists, or any parents for that matter, from experimenting with life by having children?
