Folks up in DC have the chance to catch my colleague Dr. Raphael Sagarin tomorrow at AAAS. He's in town to talk about his new book 'Natural Security: A Darwinian Approach to a Dangerous World':

'From observations of nature and studies in evolutionary biology, Dr. Sagarin has drawn some intriguing conclusions that he suggests may have applications to security in human society.
