While moseying about the Smithsonian, our Magnificent Seven ministers may like to bone up on their natural history. Darwinian evolution has a tough time of it here in Norn Iron, and not surprisingly, as the empirically minded can see evidence of Jocko Homo all around us.

All together now: Are we not men?
