Mailbag laments lost opportunity for superior genetic engineering

Most of us don't marry our prom dates, and the world generally doesn't suffer for it. Generally. Asks Fullerton's Fred Irwin:

"After watching Brandy's performance thus far in Dancing with the Stars, imagine had she and Kobe stuck it out? Would they take over the world? Would their child be the first ever multiple-sport MVP? My head is spinning."

Serious questions, no doubt. It's certainly hard to believe the Kobrandy DNA wouldn't have a leg up in any "survival of the fittest" tests.
