Canada's the Globe and Mail has an article about umbilical cord stem cell transplants taking place in China. There are some positive testimonials but some researchers are skeptical.

The Cadillac News and reporter Matt Whetstone basically provide a press release for the Michigan Citizens for Stem Cell Research and Cures. They fall for every one of the MCSCRC's lies (they want to strengthen the ban on human cloning, researchers can go to jail for 10 years for conducting certain types of stem cell research, etc.) and the headline declares the "Stem Cell Debate is coming to Cadillac" when both presenters are in favor of embryonic stem cell research.

Scott Klusendorf provides Mitt Romney with some advice about speaking about his views on abortion.
