Title is incorrect and false.

Well, the PC crowd will now demand that the song "Three Blind Mice" be banned.

Unfortunately, their tails were cut off later in the day by a carving-knife wielding farmer's wife.

Experiment with embryonic stem cells injected into Micheal J. Fox.

Scientists say they've restored the vision of blind mice

Dare I suggest that in the study, n=3?

"...The finding also gets around the thorny ethical question of
using embryonic stem cells
. In fact, MacLaren said, "we do
not want embryonic stem cells because they are too undifferentiated."


Shoot, those ethical questions went out the window here in Missouri
when we were effectively told that we'd kill Michael J. Fox if
we didn't vote for Amendment 2.

The writer of this article is behind the times.

I have spoken to many different academic researchers working with industry on the use of stem cells for degenerative joint conditions. They tell me that there is no interest in embryonic cells. Any embroyonic implantation introduces another person's DNA with unknown long term risks and ramifications. An embroyonic product would be essentially a drug with all the crushing FDA drug regulations, with additional embryonic regulation and risk.

Actual development is directed towards harvesting the patient's own blood marrow, processing blood marrow in the operating room to extract the patient's own stem cells. These cells will be injected into the target joint. This all will take place in one procedure within the confines of the O.R.

Any clinical material either entering or leaving the O.R., triggers massive regulatory requirements. A device entering the O.R. that rearranges the patient's own cells is to the FDA only a device, which incurs a mere fraction of the regulatory burden.

By the way we started planting Coleus all over our yards a year ago, but I didn't know that's what it was named.

We've got one that's deep red almost burgundy. And I just learned you can snap a branch off and plant it and it will grow.

Nice going, Coleus.
