I have not yet seen this article, but it sounds like we are a getting 
into some very dangerous territory.

To suggest that people are born "criminal genes" that can be detected is 
absurd. This is one of many criticisms of the human genome 
project. We are always looking for something to blame besides ourselves.

I suggest reading Lewontin's "The Ideology of Biology" if you are at all 
interested in the Human Genome project.

I am on my way to the library journals!

Sorry if this message offends anyone, the devil made me do it!
