Google Street View is simply awesome

I was talking with a woman about Denver, and about where I lived for 8 months in December 1994 to August 1995. I lived near the corner of Havana and Mississippi. There was a King Sooper supermarket there. I tried Google Maps to refresh my memory and then realized that I could see the street view for the corner. I can see from Google Street View that the King Sooper supermarket is still there. I was just inside Denver from Aurora, as I remembered the location. I could turn around and see what seems to be the mall on the opposite side of the street. The Conoco station is still there, as well.

I was interested to read what should have been obvious: Neanderthals were part of Homo Sapiens, not a separate species. The fact that they could be part of fertile cross-breeds confirms that fact. I have long suspected, as have many other people, that Neanderthal traits have survived to this day in the general populace. E. M. Smith has a blog post with a photograph.
