Washington Post: Eugenics helps Humanity

It is hard to believe what I just read, and what you can read here, but I've had others read it as well, just to verify that what my eyes are seeing is actually real.  Today, in a blog post, a Richmond-based Washington Post reporter described eugenics this way:

"...eugenics, which looks at ways to improve the human species."

There are so many things that could be said about such an astonishing statement concerning historical atrocities that led to the murder of countless millions, but I'm going to leave the comment to speak for itself.

The question is, do The Post editors and the reporter actually believe this?
