    • It had taken much too long to write yesterday’s blog post entitled, “‘Us’ versus ‘them,’” and I needed to get out the door. This morning I made some modest revisions, including adding a footnote. This didn’t quite seem to merit marking as an update to the post so I instead changed the publication date, which changes the URL. I have revised it here.

There is a new blog post entitled, “‘Us’ versus ‘them.’” Something that’s worth noting here is that I had previously embraced the view of a number of authors that prehistoric humans had lived more in harmony with their environment and with each other than we do today.[1] I’m backing off from that some.[2]
