A High-Profile Bioethicist!?!

What did these parents feed their children? One is White House Chief of Staff, one inspired an HBO show about Hollywood agents, and the another has become maybe the first ever famous bioethicist

The insanity of all of that aside, this NY Times piece on Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel and his role in advising President Obama's on healthcare legislation is a great read. If for no other reason, it is yet another example of how issues that need to be carefully, reasonably discussed get spun out into crazy, maddening, thoughtless rhetoric in the political arena.
