Lowest common denominator is not the only denominator

You know, the whole tone and purport of this article annoys me. I suppose it's intended partly as humour? Then it's not the kind of humour I find funny. It's snide, shopping mall cynical, and cheap.

Wrapping up broken glass so the garbage collectors don't cut their hands is no badge of sainthood. It's common sense, which I fancy rather more people possess than (either) writer believes. And supposing the story of transplanting a human brain into a monkey isn't total fabrication, the brain probably came from someone who donated their organs after death. No need for the snotty 'swiped from some homeless person.'
