Life Links 6/11/07

I think the New York Times should write an editorial calling Mike Wallace "deluded" after his letter to editor. What a clown. What does Kevorkian speaking Japanese (or any of Wallace's other points) have to do with whether or not Kevorkian is "deluded and unrepentant?"

In a recent sit down interview with Mitch Albom, Kevorkian even declared, "If I were sorry, I'd be a hypocrite" and "I wanted the imprisonment."

Deluded and unrepentant sound just about right.

Deluded might also be an appropriate term for Nancy Pelosi who according to a story in the New York Times thinks,
"Science is a gift of God to all of us and science has taken us to a place that is biblical in its power to cure," said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California. "And that is the embryonic stem cell research."
Biblical in its power to cure whom? All those imaginary patients?

Dennis Byrne: No place for politics in stem cell science
Significant numbers of scientists believe that the less controversial route to creating stem cells is possible, but their voices have been drowned out by politicians who would have it that if you're opposed to embryonic stem cell research, you're a "right-wing nut" who opposes all stem cell research.
Or being drowned out by ignorant Hollywood-types. For example, this ridiculous YouTube video by director Jerry Zucker.
