Pity These Poor Dumb Animals

Via Balloon Juice, a fascinating article from the Boston Sunday Globe on the theory that what made humanity so successful wasn't simply our ability to craft tools, but in the inventive ways we made use of animals - both as food sources and as "living tools". To a layman like me it seems like a fairly compelling case.

Obviously, though, I'm biased, since I'm automatically sympathetic to any theory arguing that people who don't like dogs are objectively my genetic inferiors.
