Give birth to the President of the United States of America!!!!

A dissertation written by President Barack Obama’s late mother is being published.

Duke University Press said Monday that an edited version of Ann Dunham’s anthropological study about rural craftsmen in Indonesia is scheduled to reach stores this fall. Dunham completed the study three years before she died in 1995.

I don’t mean to sound snarky. I think it is a great idea for a number of reasons.

  1. Or you can just publish a first rate novel as an anthropolgy thesis like Carlos Castanada’s Teachings of Don Juan.

  2. Or be strongly linked to Heyerdahl and publicise an experiment called Peace Project but not really mind if media calls it Sex Raft!!!!
    I was looking up the latest Brexit soap opera gossip in a UK paper ( I think the casting director and writer are pretty crappy. All the characters are quite over the top and not believable but it’s strangely addictive anyhow) and came across this gem of a story about a new film about anthropologist Santiago Genov├ęs and wondered if Greg had ever written about him. A search turned up zilch, but this particular page seemed applicable.
    Any thoughts on this Greg?
