Are chimpanzees people? I had a discussion with the Snook about this article last night. He came down on the side of emphatically not, mostly because we're genetically pretty close to lots of other things too. I like the other argument though, that if they can communicate with us and share so many of our complex behaviours, then that makes them "people" no matter what the genetics say. (Or at the very least, ramen.)

This is where my weblog goes to die. Every post has a permanent home, so this is where you should link if you're so inclined.
"RunningBlog" refers to posts related to running that are cross-posted over at geekgirlrunner.
 
"Moblog" refers to posts and images posted directly from my mobile phone.
 
"PW Blog" refers to posts recovered from my very first weblog, which dealt with news related to my college dorm.
