Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: P-102;  Mirsky is quizzing me about some transcribed discussion,
not found in the main text of P-102. [See P/102.discn].  The attributions
re P-275/6 are in fact to Crick's language.  I'd put them (taxing children]
in the same category as Jonathan Swift's modest proposal re Ireland.
How can one socialize parental behavior without injuring extant children
who then become doubly victimized?  I don't know what he may have published
on eugenic themes.
