For all the past week's headlines about embryonic stem cells' medical promise there is a sobering reality: The science to prove that promise will take years, probably too long for many of today's seriously ill.Who knew? I was pretty sure we’ve been told for years that once Bush’s funding restrictions were removed, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and any other disease you could think was going to be cured. It’s amazing how this sobering “news” comes out after Obama junks restrictions on the funding of embryonic stem cell research. Now that scientists and the media are no longer fighting to get rid of funding restrictions, they no longer need to the hype embryonic stem cell research.

Where has this AP article been hiding for the last 8 years? Apparently, the promise of embryonic stem cells is decades away.
