Good timing?

In science: rejoicing upon our POTUS's intended repeal of limits to ESC research funding. At least
the new policy won't affect federal laws that prevent the use of federal money to destroy human embryos. So while it will substantially broaden research opportunities on established cell lines, it won't allow the creation of new ones. That would require congressional action. The president hasn't taken a position on that issue.

Supporters say that the new policy will "attract young scientists to the field." Not this one.

In religion, a former terrorist says what we've all been thinking: If Islam is really a religion of peace, prove it. 'Nuff said.
