Stem Cell Research: Pro or Profane?
By J. Pinkerton

The uproar over stem cell research has once again given the genetic 
sciences the spotlight, and with that spotlight come questions. "Are you 
making gill-men? Is that what all this is about?" the savvy among us probe. 
As is usually the case, stem cell research is not actually about gill-men 
at all, but something else entirely that isn?t terribly interesting. 
Nonetheless, it is news we must embrace. Why? Because any advance in 
genetics gets us one step closer to the ultimate goal of all gene 
tinkering: that someday, it will be raining men. Perhaps even gill-men, 
though we don?t have the hard facts to back that up. 

To date, male-based precipitation research has produced nothing 
significant. Yet every new finding -- be it stem cells or what have you -- 
gives us hope that the ultimate prize is ever closer to our anxious grasp.
