My travelogue of a journey through 1000 bars in 1 year, and more, much more.

Bar Man Linked To Scandal
The shame of it all is almost too much to bear. I woke up this morning to find that Hwang Woo Suk, the noted veterinarian who appeared on the same page with me and, incidently, Mariah Carey, Angelina Jolie, and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, in the Japan Times Weekly and was widely hailed for his work in the cloning of human embryos capable of yielding viable stem cells is now under investigation for fabricating at least some of his results. This is horrible. Next thing you know it will turn out that Tom Cruise's romance with Katie Holmes wasn't all it was made out to be. Or, worse yet, that Angelina's lips have been artifically enhanced. We won't touch Maria's breasts, not that we wouldn't want to. I just don't know if I can live with this disgrace.
On the other hand, didn't anyone ever wonder why someone who was a veterinarian by training was making all of these breakthroughs in genetic science?
