Dolphin intelligence

There has been a great debate raging in the community of dolphin researchers and animal ethicists about the intelligence of dolphins. Most of us have long believed that dolphins are intelligent, but a recent researcher is positing that they are not as intelligent as we have given them credit for. Personally, I think he's a quack--just so you know where I stand--and offer this link to another researcher's article as evidence.

It would be more convenient for big-business if they were believed to be not as intelligent, I suppose.

I think we could learn a lot from the dolphins. I'd like to see what the other researcher had to say. He's probably just one who eats all his kibbles at once anyway, and probably doesn't "get" the squirrel and grasshopper story, ;)
