and don't they make the trains run on time?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 31, 2008

 A Scottish solon is outraged that Cardinal Keith O'Brien would dare to compare embryo research with Nazi genetic experimentation. It's all very well for the prelate to oppose the practice,  says Tavish Scott, but "language about Nazis could put Scottish jobs at risk." (Scottish researchers, you see, have high hopes of reeling in contracts for the embryo research.) 

Yes, Tavish, we see your point. Now would you sit down, compose yourself, summon all your powers of understanding, and see if you can see the cardinal's point?

What if embryo research is like Nazi experimentation? Now that you think about it, didn't those concentration camps provide jobs for many German laborers? 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
