What about your brain, honey?

… Mating with 'shorter people' is a 'step toward a greener planet' since smaller individuals are 'inherent conservationists,' New York Times op-ed claims - TheBlaze.

I used to be 6 1.  Now that I’m 81, I’ve lost a couple of inches. I’ve also lost a good bit of my appetite (as my mother did at the same age).  Well, shorty, don’t bother any tall guys. At least not until you stopping looking only for science articles that only support yourOpEd point. Lo, hoe The Times has fallen.
