Designer Babies

If Robert Klark Graham is sincere in his efforts to improve our lot, and he may be, he should place less emphasis on the genetic insularization of our intellectual elite and concentrate instead on getting more people into the pool, so to speak. By striving for genetic democracy--mixing all races and types of people--Graham is much more likely to succeed in his goals than with the short-sighted concept of breeding perfect white babies. If Graham really wants to make an impact within his lifetime, he would do even better by attempting to improve the environments of the underprivileged.
