First day of September two thousand and eleven

I have been much bemused of late in noticing that Boing Boing dot net has become so seldom relevant to anything these days.  A  nursery of new ideas has burgeoned, leaving them firstborn in the dust.

Moreover, I learned on Nova last night that human mothers abandon or kill their infants more often than any other primate on the planet. Mary Poppins, anyone?

Babies, it turns out, have advanced facial recognition software keenly attuned to Mom and personal survival.

Ummm, yes. "It takes an entire village to raise a child..." [Subtext — it's not my problem!] does seem a bit self-serving, does it not? This begs the question, are dumb blondes cannily advertising their fitness to be caring, loving mothers?
