Missouri judge rejects stem cell suit

Proof again that progressive thinking can be found in every corner of the country.

JEFFERSON CITY — For the second time, a Missouri trial judge rules against critics of embryonic stem cell research who want to block state funds from going to life science grants.

01/15/2009 – Mo. judge rejects stem cell lawsuit – STLtoday.com.

The “two Americas” thing is so 2004. Someone should tell Sarah Palin, who, bless her heart, just won’t seem to go the hell away.

    About Me

    Born and raised in Indianapolis, I've spent my adult life trying to understand where I came from by living in other places. I worked for the International Herald Tribune, in Paris, The New York Times and the Queens Chronicle, in New York, and I studied in Dublin. As a freelancer, I've written about books, cars and travel for those and other publications, including the San Francisco Chronicle, the Chicago Sun-Times and Publishers Weekly. I've reported from Dubai, Bahrain, the Philippines and Kentucky. Since October, I've lived in Los Angeles, with several month-long stints in Indianapolis mixed in for good measure. Somewhere along the road I got the Indiana state flag tattooed on my left arm.

    My current project -- a documentary about the horrific 2006 slaying of an Indianapolis family of seven -- is pulling me back home, where the first seeds of my angst-ridden wanderings were planted.

    What I'm Up To

    Human Trafficking in Dubai

    The first installment of a piece I worked on for several years was just published in Guernica magazine. It relates Dubai’s current economic collapse to the fundamental instability of an economy that was based heavily on worker exploitation. Check it out, here.
