Cubans of the Northern Shore and Cubans of the Southern Shore

The photos of Robert Vanderhilst compare Cubans of the Southern shore to Cubans of the Northern shore.

Meanwhile, Le Monde 2 highlights the theories of Marylène Patou-Mathis (click on image "11"), a Frenchwoman (why doesn't that sound surprizing?) who laments the disappearance of Neanderthal man. And no wonder. "Too cool to survive" Neanderthal died out because, contrary to our ancestor, Cro-Magnon, he was intelligent, cultivated, and non-violent. (How long before we get a book entitled, "Frenchmen Descend From Neanderthals, Americans Descend From Cro-Magnons"?)

While we're at it, check out this book from that other product of the lucid society, Yves Paccalet.
