Midmorning: Denise Brown and evolution

Posted at 7:32 AM on January 18, 2007 by Bill Wareham (1 Comments)

At 9 a.m., Kerri Miller talks with the sister of Nicole Brown Simpson talks about how focusing on domestic violence helped her overcome her grief over her sister's death. Denise Brown is the sister of Nicole Brown Simpson who was killed in 1994. The Brown family won a civil suit against O. J. Simpson, who was acquitted of killing Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

At 10 a.m., from Lucy's daughter to neanderthal DNA, new discoveries in the world of paleontology are giving us a better picture of how humans evolved. Midmorning explores the latest in human origins research with one of the leading experts in the field. Kerri's guest is Donald Johanson, director of the Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University and coauthor of From Lucy to Language, which has recently been updated. He discovered the 3.2 million-year-old Lucy skeleton in Africa in 1974.

Only comment I have is that this is just one of a whole universe of problems that will be alleviated and maybe solved when the elephant in the living room of mental illness is finally recognized in this country. We need to both get the victim to safety but also stop the obsessive behavior of the perpetrator. Thanks.
