Steve Pinker is awesome

Several days ago I found a Time magazine article by Steve Pinker via the ever-useful Edge. I had been meaning to do something cool with it, but it just sat in my Bloglines marked "keep new" for too long, so now I'll just tell you to read it, and say that last April I missed a chance at a small group chat with him--I didn't know how cool he was at the time!

Actually, one more thing: for female readers, how much do you sympathize with the Jessica Lange character? I'm willing to say her guess as to what's going on in most guys minds is not totally inaccurate. (That's an understatement--whose use on my part kinda illustrates Pinker's point.)
