Wow, I've been following this story for years, and I honestly never thought I'd see this day. I was pleased when the NIH dramatically reduced the number of chimps a few years ago, but to retire ALL of them? Fantastic news! link

I hope they enjoy their retirements. And thank you, Dr. Francis Collins.

"It's"?!?! Stupid autocorrect! I'll ask Bill to fix it.

Auto correct is as ignorant of proper apostrophe use as …. as the average TMP savant.

Its true. Wait, what? D'oh!

I've found that my autocorrect always changes "its" to "it's," and, bafflingly, always changes "well" to "we'll." That one makes no sense whatsoever.
