Ah, it was refreshing to see Obamas address yesterday. Restore science to it rightful place of integrity. To base science government decisions on sound science. As a first step in that direction he allowed funding of stem cell research. Now we may get some answers. There may not be any new cures, but if we aren't allowed to do the research we dont' know. And maybe that is what the extreme right fundies were after all along. It is threatening to them that if we prove their precious beliefs wrong maybe their other words of wisdom are wrong also. But, now we have the chance to see. It will not come overnight, but with time, work and patience.
