Common Sense and Stem Cells

Top of Harry Reid's agenda, reportedly, is getting more money for "stem cell research."

Conveniently omitted, of course, is the crucial detail of whether he's talking about embryonic stem cell research. Even so, he might want to think about the fact that research shows that the private sector operates more efficiently than the public one.

Whatever one's views of the ethics of embryonic stem cell research, it seems like a mistake on every level to turn it over to the public sector.

"No offense to the institution of the presidency, and I'm certainly looking forward to working with him and his administration. [But] leaders do some symbolic things to try to convey who they are and what the message is." That comment, by Mr. Webb, sounds painfully akin to the "I support the troops, but not the mission." tripe leftsts so fondly and casually spout. As a Vietnam veteran, Mr. Webb ought to remember how such words hurt the troops and benefitted the enemy. That he apparentrly doesn't demonstrates, for me, his lack of class, something all too often found in our political class.
