I'm about halfway through a Nova show about the family in Turkey that walks on their hands, I'm sure you remember when they made news. It's quite fascinating. Here's what I've found out so far; there are 19 children in the family and 5 of them are afflicted. The five that are afflicted are also mildly to very retarded (and I mean that in a clinical term, they seemed like lovely people in a social way). Their parents are cousins (second cousins, I gathered). 2 of them can also walk upright, but are unbalanced so it looks like they're drunk when they do. Apes who walk in a similar way on all fours actually have different wrist bones that do not bend which helps them to walk on their knuckles while the family in Turkey walks on their palms. The Turkish society does not like that scientists are studying them because it is forbidden to discuss evolution and their society is offended that they may be the missing link to evolution. In fact they are sure that their home is cursed, which made the family tear down their home and rebuild a new one, but that surprisingly didn't seem to cure the siblings.
Also, did you know that South Africa passed a gay marriage bill? That's right, the country that is only a decade or so past apartheid has leapt pass America when it comes to giving its citizens rights.
And finally - God bless Montana. For years I've been trying to tell people that although they're conservative out there, they're certainly not crazy Christan right wingers and they would eventually come to their senses and elect some people who would represent them correctly!
