A culture of life? Only in the petri dish.

The Bush administration's stem cell research policy has always bothered me. There are a raft of reasons. The pragmatic one is that it prevents good science -- potentially life-saving science -- from getting done.

But the larger reason is that it is both morally and logically hypocritical.

The article "War and Embryos", by Michael Kinsley, nails why: life that motivates your political base appears to be the only life that's precious.

Kinsley's take on "collateral damage" is bang on.
