Thanx! Those reports are all a bit backward thinking, though- why the big surprise? Since the latest genetic studies prove that there may have been lots of enthusiastic interchange of genetic material between Cro-Magnon & Neanderthals....we'll have to give up those rigid "We & They" classifications, along with some of our predjudices too!
