Bizarre lede of the (still-young) day

One day in the foreseeable future, people will be able to stop at businesses south of Columbia to buy soybeans genetically altered to help prevent cancer and ice that can freeze at 74 degrees Fahrenheit.

Maybe there will also be artificial or cultured limbs and skin. Maybe there will be non-toxic anti-freeze.


"Where are you going, dear?"

"Down to the hardware store to pick up some artificial skin. Can I get you anything?"

"Hmm. Some soybeans and cultured limbs for the dinner party. And some ice to keep the beer tepid."

If this is the foreseeable future of shopping in south Columbia, you can see why HEADSUP-L wants to bring back the 8-track. Copyeds, pls read the ledes before you wave them along.

Hey...I was the copyed who read that story. And I called Liz, Mike and Tara over for a discussion on it. Actually, I believe my exact argument was, "I can totally see this ending up on Fred's HeadsUp list." Called that one! But we DID discuss it, not just "wave it on." Thought you'd be interested in the conversation :-)
