Today's big (and not so big) news

Posted by Melissa1143 on 11:43 AM

1. Human stem cell research has begun. The hope is that injecting stem cells into the spinal cords of injured persons will actually help permanent injuries to heal. Test persons will be monitored for one year.

As always, I have been a fan of stem cell research. Although I don't agree with mothers receiving money for the embryo, I definitely think it is something that could advance medical technology. Healing those with major back issues could be an amazing discovery when the answer use to just be "here's a wheel chair"

2. A football coach is being charged with reckless homicide when he allegedly refused to allow a 15 year old player to take water breaks. The player collapsed with a 107 degree temperature and died three days later

Are you serious? I was competitive in high school and I got pushed hard, but come on people! Running players with no water in 90 degree heat is inexcusable. There is more to life than just this. If you are going to do three hour practices, give them water!

3. McCain doesn't agree with Obama's move to close Guantanamo Bay. "I think that it's a wise move. But I also think that we should have addressed this whole issue completely, because it did not address the issue of those who we have in custody and can't -- and no country will take them back."

McCain's point has merit. However, who is still talking to McCain? I thought you disappeared off the face of the planet when you lost an election. Since when did his opinion become news worthy? Apparently Mrs. Obama hasn't worn anything interesting or else that would have topped the news instead of McCain.
