The Human Genome

At the breakfast table, John comes across the following headline:

"Washoe, chimp who signed words, dies at 42.
Female knew 250 words, taught others."

The monkey got four columns.

"A bigger obituary than I'll get," sighs John. "Trumped by a monkey."

Hey, you and one billion others.

Tell John as soon as he can talk monkey, he'll get more columns than Washoe!

"This is the oppressor's language
yet I need it to talk to you."
