A Modest Proposal

In response to the news that children of older fathers performed less well on intelligence tests administered at 8 months, 4 years and 7 years, I would like to offer the following modest proposal: to avoid the burdensome costs of having to deal with defective children (not to mention the burdensome costs of having to perform inane studies), let’s begin administering intelligence tests from straight out the womb, and for those newborns who score less than average, we can dump them in the same bag as the placenta and have done with the matter.
