In sadder news, I think I've mentioned this before, but a good friend of mine has ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). It's a terrible disease, and does so much damage so quickly, and there's no cure for it. Nothing! What the fuck?! I know America's too dumb and religious to do anything, but you'd think that by now, China would have done enough stem-cell research or harvested enough cloned humans and experimented on them to have come up with something. C'mon, China! Get your shit together. If we can't count on you to carry out the morally ambiguous medical research we so desperately need then what can we count on you for?! Lead in our children's toys? Do something!
(Curmudgeon's note: my other good buddy actually shot a documentary about our friend with ALS, who is also a Hollywood writer/director. It's a great movie, and the money goes to ALS, so if you're interested, you can buy it from the website: http://www.livingwithlew.com/ ).
