Really well written piece in the NYT this week. Can you call a 9-year-old a psychopath?
Wow. Make all the baby Ted Bundy jokes you like, but this is pretty chilling, amazing stuff. I'll never forget watching The Bad Seed as a kid. Spectacularly evil little girl, long before Damien et al came on the scene. Roz and I would watch it late at night, and it's still a go-to punchline in this house.
But reading about some of the kids in this article is just stunning. Read further and see the genetic link - even scarier.
Dunno what they're going to be able to do, but as a doctor quoted in the piece says, they have to start tracking this so they can have the longer case studies they need to figure out if they can make the branch grow a different way.
Can you imagine if they can't? Knowing that kind of information, and being powerless to stop it?
