What important adjective is missing from this story?
Missouri Race May Hinge on Stem-Cell Opinions
by Greg Allen
All Things Considered, May 2, 2006
Election 2006
Supporters of stem-cell research in Missouri have likely turned in enough signatures to place a measure protecting stem-cell research on the ballot. But Sen. Jim Talent (R-MO) has announced he will oppose the measure -- a stance that pro-life groups had long requested.

The adjective is embryonic.
Here's a letter that I sent NPR on this very topic.
And here, following, is the reply I rec'd - almost a full month after my original letter. Do you think it would be worthwhile to send in another letter on the same topic?

NPR : Revisiting 'Birth of a Nation' in Today's America

I hope that in a generation or two, the hoi polloi are just as embarassed by the distortions and prejudice in the DVC movie (and book) as they are now by the distortions and prejudice in such classics as 'Birth of a Nation' and 'Protocols of the elders of Zion'. But I'm not holding my breath waiting for it.
