Monkeys with Culture and Babies on Dope

A recent study says that some orangutan parents teach their offspring to use leaves as napkins. Others say good night with a spluttering, juicy raspberry. And still others get water from a hole by dipping a branch and then licking the leaves.

So, some large monkeys have culture, and yet, I can’t go to the grocery store without seeing heathen children, much less a child with table manners in a public place? In a semi-related, but much more disturbing article, people who don’t know how to raise their children can now dope them up instead…the FDA has approved Prozac for babies.
