Glowing Cats!

While this is pretty cool (my son immediately wanted a glow-in-the-dark cat), it’s also pretty disturbing. If you want a fictionalized guess at the future of genetic manipulation, read Michael Crichton’s Next. It’s fiction, but it’s still a sobering picture of what could happen if genetic manipulation goes too far. Something to keep in mind.

There’s my two cents.

I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
