Neandertals for kids05 Jan 2010
There’s not really an exciting story to go with the headline, but after it dropped into my news feed, I had to link it:
How We Spent Facebook's Money On A Neanderthal's Skull
Yesterday, a nice Christmas present from Facebook landed in our in-box: $25 to spend at DonorsChoose.org. After reviewing reader suggestions on how to spend it, we eventually decided to help a North Carolina school teacher buy his students a model of a Neanderthal skull for AP biology students.
Well, OK – short, and heartwarming. I think every school could use a Neandertal skull.
