Pastorius, busy working at that day job thing, called and alerted me to the stories in the next three posts below. All L.A. Times and seemingly actually reporting the news for a change.
Who are these guys and what have they done with the paper we've all come to know and use to wipe our backsides?

The LA Times story reminds me of the joke about lawyers.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) announced last week that they were going to start using lawyers instead of rats in their experiments.
Naturally, the American Bar Association was outraged, and filed suit, but the NIH presented some very good reasons for the switch.

1) The lab assistants were becoming very attached to their little rats. This emotional involvement was interfering with the research being conducted. No such attachment could form for a lawyer.

2) Lawyers breed faster.

3) Lawyers are much cheaper to care for and the humanitarian societies won't jump all over you no matter what you're studying.

4) There are some things even a rat won't do. However, sometimes it very hard to exterpolate our test results to human beings.

Perhaps there are stories that even the LA Times have to report - while holding its nose.
