Gossip doyenne Liz Smith quotes me again

From her NY Post column:

END CODE: Here's a thought from the American Conservative film critic Steve Sailer: "In the climax to 'The Da Vinci Code,' we discover that one of the characters is Jesus' last living descendant. This . . . hooey is superstition of the grossest sort. Consider how genealogy actually works. Go back 80 generations (2,000 years), and your family tree has a septillion slots to fill. If Jesus had any living descendants today, he would have millions of them. The only way there could be just one surviving heir is if the family had relentlessly inbred so incestuously that the latest Merovingian would have three eyes."
