Hwang Charged

South Korean dog cloner and wannabe human cloner Hwang Woo-Suk has been charged with "fraud, embezzlement and violating bioethics laws."

Hwang allegedly accepted $2 million in private donations from individuals who thought his fake research was successful and embezzled $900,000 more in private and public research funds.

Think about this - if Hwang had actually been successful in cloning a human being then none of this would probably be happening. He'd still be a national hero for cloning a human being while now he's a disgrace because he failed and acted like he was successful. How far have certain societies fallen to where they're at the point where cloning human beings makes one a national hero but failing to clone and lying about it makes one a national disgrace?
