"That's bad news for shorties."

Dennis Byrne on stem cell research:
"From this we should conclude that the comparative worth of human life is determined by size. The smaller you are, the fewer human rights you get; when you're the size of a dot and you have none. That's bad news for shorties. Stone, writing in an op-ed column for the Chicago Tribune, never gets around to saying how big a person must get before being endowed with the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness....

These guardians of compassion and sensitivity couldn't be more stone cold. They are wild-eyed with conviction that Bush's veto was nothing more than a cynical political ploy to placate right-wing religious nuts. They are unwilling to even consider that the veto reflects longstanding and sound philosophical and metaphysical thought about the most fundamental of human questions."
