Designer genes........................

Fred Reed takes a reasoned look at the coming future of genetic manipulation, evolution on the quick.

"A crucial point: A great deal of behavior is unmistakably genetic. Babies nurse, toddlers of two raise hell, teenagers rebel and copulate, men of thirty get into bar fights and women don’t."

He asks, but doesn't answer, the question:

"Do we redesign ourselves, or don’t we?"
I'm thinking that genie is already out of the bottle.  You?
