Bizarro is brought to you today by The March of Progress.
As I predicted, I got some mail about this cartoon from readers who are against embryonic stem cell research. I also got a couple from people who informed me that stem cell research was not illegal, only the use of embryonic stem cells, and something else about government funding, but I zoned out.
I know every detail of every cartoon does not stand up to academic scrutiny, it isn't meant to. It's a cartoon.
Folks that wrote were of the opinion that embryonic stem cells are humans and should be afforded legal protection. I don't happen to share that view, but that's not really what this cartoon is about. It's actually just a flimsy, current-events excuse to use the phrase "boltless neck." I thought that was funny.
Of course, we may disagree on that point, too.
