        I wouldn't be *too* sure of that. People have been clamoring about human
cloning since the discovery of DNA. Tangental research has been restricted,
even outlawed in many countries, and in our own enlightened land the federal
government won't fund it.

        Mind you, I'm against government funding on principle, but if you're going
to spend other people's money, you might as well do it wisely.
