This mandate was flawed from the start. The idea that now is the time to set aside the deeply controversial question of whether heritable genome editing should be done at all so that a small group of experts can settle the nitty-gritty details of how it should take place is entirely backward. It flies in the face of the widely shared acknowledgment that scientists alone cannot make this decision; that we must have wide-ranging and inclusive public discussions aimed at building broad societal consensus. It undermines policies in some 70 countries around the world that prohibit heritable genome editing. And it’s a slap in the face to the many scientists, biotech executives, human rights and social justice advocates, and others who support a moratorium or ban on altering the human germline. … [Read more...] about Are we mapping a path to CRISPR babies?

ONE: As I Lay Dying, first published 90 years ago this October. Not that it’s easy; no Faulkner is easy. He splits the book between 15 different first-person narrators, and some chapters dive deeply into their speaker’s fractured consciousness. Other narrators speak colloquially, though, as if telling a story to their neighbors, and the novel doesn’t depend in any significant way on the backstories provided by Faulkner’s other work. We follow the mule-drawn wagon of the Bundren family as they try, in the July heat, to move the corpse of the clan’s matriarch some 40 miles to its burial place, watching—and smelling--as they are delayed by a series of disasters. It stands as a modernist triumph, and anyone who finishes it will have a sense of achievement. Nevertheless it remains accessible, and often appears in high school classrooms. I don’t usually agree with curricular choices that schools make. No adolescent … [Read more...] about You Need to Read Faulkner Right Now but You Might Need a Map
