"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Science is best when discussed: leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments!!

So W is 'replacing' some members of his bioethics committee. Apparently, a couple of scientists were more concerned with science than with W.'s political angles. His stance on stem cell research has long been a ridiculous one. In pandering to his rabid-right base, he, as usual, ignores actual science. People get so strung out about these things because they don't understand (a) what they are, (b) how they work, or (c) why they're so fucking important. Stem cell research is the only real chance we seem to have of ever treating things like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, paralysis, or Huntington's.

One more reason he's gotta go.
