Accumulated Errors

The safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.

- C.S. Lewis

A recent article on looks at the South Korea cloning controversy from a slightly different angle. Rather than focusing on the one blockbuster example of unethical scientific research that (fleetingly) captures the public's attention, the piece focuses on the .
In particular the distribution system for scientific research grants is examined and found to be wanting. While the piece is short and correspondingly light on examples of, and solutions for, the problem with grants it's a provocative read.

Thanks to the for pointing this out.

If I could speak in any
language in heaven or
on earth but didn't love
others, I would only be
making meaningless noise
like a loud gong or a
clanging cymbal. If I
had the gift of prophecy,
and if I knew all the
mysteries of the future
and knew everything
about everything, but
didn't love others, what
good would I be? And
if I had the gift of faith
so that I could speak
to a mountain and make
it move, without love
I would be no good to
anybody. If I gave
everything I have to
the poor and even
sacrificed my body,
I could boast about it;
but if I didn't love others,
I would be of no value
whatsoever. Love is
patient and kind. Love
is not jealous or boastful
or proud or rude. Love
does not demand its
own way. Love is not
irritable, and it keeps
no record of when it
has been wronged.
It is never glad about
injustice but rejoices
whenever the truth
wins out. Love never
gives up, never loses
faith, is always hopeful,
and endures through
every circumstance.

May You Always
Experience This
Kind Of Love,
Dr. Howdy

While I appreciate the advice on how to love (for those who care, the passage comes from 1 Corinthians 13:1-3), I'm not sure what this has to do with reevaluating standards of scientific research and resource distribution...
