Fortunatly there is a solution for this on the immediate horizon. A
doctor in Chicago has annouced plans to open the first human cloning
clinic. Think about it, we could have thousands of copies of some bland
human being suitable for political appoitments, special councils,
judgeships, etc. All of them kept on ice, complete blank human clay.
These people will show up for their duties having published no
controversial papers, committed no embarrasing acts, made no outrageous
statements to the press, or having experienced any independent thought,
deed or emotion.
