  1. I just read your Wall Street Journal article, “The Botch of the Human Body”. It was quite good. You obviously understand the efficacy of mixing geewhiz with humor! But a nonrigid S shaped spine often functions like a leafspring for bipeds and for quadrupeds. The tarsal and carpal bones in the wrist and ankle function as torque converters — a very useful piece of evolution that allows our porcelain joints to last 100 years. It is tough to replicate that function in a prosthetic leg without adding a lot of weight.
    I guess the flip side of the million miss evolutionary story is that, “The wheels of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceeding fine.”
    Thank you for your broad knowledge and your knack for spinning a story!
