This is moving like wildfire across the health wires today-- and it has an OHSU tie-in!
The whole cloning debate is a facinating one that really drives people to opposite ends of the spectrum. Usually, careful persuasion can tip the balance of an argument.. but it seems to me when it comes to cloning most people either feel it's right or wrong. End of story. Not up for debate. At any rate, I thought you might be interested to know anout the Primate Center's discovery.

Naw, no biggie. It's just part of the territory. Did I ever tell you about all time favorite caller? This woman used to call (a couple times) and suggest different plastic surgery options for my face-- because she found me "distracting". Are you serious?! That had to be one of the all time bests, in my book. It's a story that I take way too much pride in repeating, even to this day.

Blog Buddy Joe (and new dad) is better at labelling photos than me. My arrows are always hand drawn and sloppy: case in point.. this photo showing the wad of loose change Joe Becker carries around in his pocket. He's about as stealthy as a foghorn.
Well, Blog Buddy Joe got ahold of my coffee photo from Friday and really nailed it:
I drink decaf-- maybe half-caf at the most.. and sucked down the ENTIRE triple shot like it was no one's business. About 15 minutes later, I remember turning to our special projects producer Rich and marvelling that I wasn't wired at all.
And then it hit me.
It took like an hour but I started sweating, figeting, and... talking. More than normal. I will say this... I was WAY productive. Even if I wondered if my heart would stop. :-)
