Darwin and Pigeons ?

Continuing on the line of relieving you of heaviosity on this blog, here is a funny story on Darwin. It brings to mind one's own trials and tribulations with referees and editors. But should I be ashamed to speak of myself in the same breath as Darwin? Maybe I should. Any here goes: I now include an excerpt following the advice of Rahul Siddarthan and append an excerpt below and provide a link for the complete story

``The father of evolutionary theory, Charles Darwin, might have ended up being better known for his work on pigeon fancying if it was not for his publisher ignoring the advice of others.''

The link to the story is here.
