We Were Fans of Komodo Dragons Before They Were Fashionable

Kathleen and I are huge fans of the wacky 1990 movie The Freshman. In spite of Marlon Brando reprising his role as The Godfather, it did not fill theaters (today, it has a 92% "fresh" rating from Rotten Tomatoes). Since it is available from many video sources, it is a movie I highly recommend.

The star of the movie was not Brando or a young Matthew Broderick. It was a Komodo Dragon.

Now, we learn that the dragon may be the key to a crucial new source of antibiotics.
You never know from where the next advance in science will come. Science is never "settled."
