There is an absolutely fascinating piece on 60 Minutes right now about how the Amish in Ohio have basically intermarried to the point where their DNA just can't sustain itself anymore. There are three kids from the same mother who all have a disease that's so rare there's not a name for it. A few years ago there were about 100 known cases worldwide of something called Cohen Syndrome. Now there's in the neighborhood of 130, with the rest all coming from the orthodox Amish community. They need an infusion of fresh DNA, like those clones on that episode of Next Generation. I hope I can stay awake long enough to see all of it.
