More Stem Cell Types

Xoff provides the news: there's another embryonic stem-cell interest group. (

Here's how they self-describe:

Wisconsin Stem Cell Now, Inc. is a grassroots organization comprised of Wisconsin residents of all backgrounds -- Democrats and Republicans, clergy and lay persons, doctors and patients -- all united in support of advancing scientific research using embryonic stem cells. We believe that this research holds the key to unlocking the cures for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, macular degeneration, spinal cord injury, MS, lupus, neurological diseases and multiple other life-threatening conditions. Impressive scientific breakthroughs have already been made, but continued public support of this important research is necessary.

Now that's an interesting graph. The "About Us" page gives us a clergyman, a doctor, and a lawyer, plus a computer science-type: Edward Fallone, Heidi Fallone, Keith Schmitz, David Froiland, George "Chip" Morris, Linda Roberts, Reverend Jim Bender

Go ahead--run a Google on them. YOU try to find the "Republican."
