Admin has to go on Cape Cod and Islands NPR Nov. 26 and discuss mysteries (let’s say crime fiction in general). The show is The Point, with Mindy Todd, 9-10 AM. Any recommendations?

Excellent NPR piece. Chet’s trade secrets (or some of them) revealed.

A Gene For Grumpiness?

“Here’s an interesting NPR piece about dog genetics,” Spence says. “Turns out they’re not as complex as humans, at least in the sense that fewer genes are required to produce certain traits. Which means new breeds can be developed relatively quickly.”

Admin reads the article, tosses it aside. “Something reductive here,” he says. “Plus who knows what new ‘breeds’ of humans could be developed in some dystopian nightmare society and how long that would take.”

“Sounds like the idea for a book,” Spence says.

“You write it – I’m very busy.”
