The Photo As Evidence: Brit Genes Less Diverse

It is a hot, muggy day in New York that started with a thunderstorm causing Grand Central Station to flood and stop train service. That days are behind him.

It is a hot, muggy day in New York that started with a thunderstorm causing Grand Central Station to flood and stop train service. That in turn helped me decide to take a "work at home" day. And though it's been a slow news day, I did come across a funny story with paparazzi pics of Rod Stewart on vacation in St. Tropez. One mean-spirited account compared him to actor Daniel Craig, who made a big impression in last year's Casino Royale when he appeared in a revealing swimsuit. Okay, point made--Rod's "If You Think I'm Sexy" days are behind him. But--and this is the interesting photographic angle--these photos may also provide evidence that counters a recent study showing that British people are becoming less genetically diverse! No way these guys came out of the same gene pool. Tomorrow, I promise...it's back to work.
