Fodder for the Culture War 

Look for all three of these studies to be used somehow by one side and denied or ignored by the other.

Children of lesbian parents are no more messed up (or likely to be homosexual) than children of heterosexual parents. They may however be more likely to know how to fix a roof or build a cabinet, and have strong emotional reactions to flannel.

The Wistar Institute has done some cool work on heritability of non-genomic traits. I may have more to say later, but it's a bloody cool idea, and could explain quite a number of things.

Psychologists have found that celebrity worship is unhealthy, in addition to being tacky and boring to the rest of us. The consolation is that maybe these people will just kill themselves already!
