This article linked from World Magazine about cloning the extinct wooly mammoth reminds me of my pal Gomer describing a monster movie he saw:
"This scientist feller was tamperin' with things that are best left alone."- Gomer Pyle c. 1966
Maybe I'm making too big a deal about nothing. What could go possibly go wrong? What's not to trust about scientists? And if something did go wrong, the Japanese could just conjure up Godzilla to save us, right?
Humans are such clowns. Even Gomer had more sense than these guys. The only thing that does shock me about this is that the Russians didn't think of it first.
