Circling the drain

The first embryonic stem cell (hereafter ESC) trial in humans will begin soon. Never mind that adult stem cells so far have been shown more effective. Never mind the moral issues. Never mind that the very concept of using "spare" human beings should be repulsive to everyone.

In addition to safety, researchers will look for signs that the treatment is effective.

Never mind that this sentence comes at the very end, an afterthought.

It certainly is a new day.

"Change" is often for the worse.
