Ape genius revisited

The brit scientists and science journalists  have a manic love affaire with apes, ever since Goodall, I assume. But now, in this side of the world, Faye Flam, in the Republic: “building a better ape?” throws a piece of bs, highlighting the work of P. Reno, Penn State. Why this insanity with apes? They are mean,ugly and hairy not to say smelly. Nature news has an article about chimps and culture, which repeats long known cliches and non news news. Maybe I am being harsh, but the hype is just insidious.
