    Actually, if you new the history it was because of the Governor at the time. As stated earlier, it had a lot to do on how to shift holidays to make room for MLK. and the Gov was a bit off.
    Governor Mecham created an executive order that withdrew an executive order by Governor Babbitt making MLK birthday a holiday. Mecham was a bigot, he loved to use the phrase "Piccanny"

    Then there was a vote and the voters had two MLK versions to choose from and both were defeated.

    AZ was boycotted and lost a superbowl, so we put the MLK holiday on the ballot and it was voted in.

    The legislatures in our state on both sides are idiots. The pay to be a legislature is very low and only draws persons that have a second income or are financially set to run for the legislatures.

    AZ has a lot of conservatives that exercise their right to vote, and AZ has a lot of others that could careless to vote on important issues. An example of this occurred during the presidential election. A friend of mine worked a polling place in a minority area. Some of the older minorities came in to vote for Obama only, and refused to vote on anything else because. When asked why they did not vote for or against sheriff Joe, and they said they only came to vote for Obama

    When I was going to the University of Houston, my Physics II instructor had a very thick accent. He was also the best instructor I ever had. His name was Paul Chu, whose work was at the very forefront of superconductivity, and who is one of the world's foremost experts on the subject. And you tell me that he should not be teaching? Sorry, but I want the best people teaching at our universities, not marginally qualified people who only have their jobs because they speak English well. Same with our primary schools - I want those who can teach well, not those who can't, but speak English well.

    Nope I didn't see that it had reference the article in question, because of the tiny link lettering they used in the reference links . I am not saying it was possibility I just think that source is a little bit questionable, since it is the only source we have that this supposedly happened.

    Why can't you have both? It seems to me that you have set your standards pretty low.

    Hardest professor I ever had was Dr Ebukuzaki at NCSU. I had her for PChem. She was the kind of professor who wrote on the chalkboard with one hand and simultaneously erased with the other.

    I never understood a word she said and if it weren't for the labs, I would have failed the class because I don't speak Engrish. Even the two other Japanese kids in class complained they couldn't understand her because she mangled english so badly that they had no clue what she was actually saying. One afternoon, three of us went through the book looking for "blackboard irradiation" and come to find out, 2 and a half hours later, she had been saying "background radiation". That was just one example of the roadblocks her inability to communicate effectively with her audience caused the class.

    She was an excellent lady and, thankfully, understood her speech was a problem with the class so she went out of her way to see to us passing the class. She had to curve the grades so steeply that a 45% was a B in the class.

    Now you tell me how that equates to an adequate education. Some of those students were going to go on to nuclear chemistry and other pursuits. Doesn't that kind of scare you a little bit?

    I would rather have a professor who can communicate effectively and teach well than one who is brilliant in their field but doesn't pass a bit of it on in class.

    But it's not the only source of human and animal cell chimeras being created. The British study with the mice with human brain cells was carried by every major news agency in Great Brittain and the US.

    But clearly, this isn't science fiction and other countries like Canada and states passed such legislation in the past without such a biased attempt at making it look like the pursuit of morons. And that's basically because Arizona is under fire for its new immigration policy so the attempt to make the state look backwards by the press is unethical journalism. But then, that's what we are used to here in the US these days.

    So that "independent" tag you chose... was it because you thought "very conservative" wasn't conservative enough?

    Umm why are people mocking this law? It's a cogent bioethics issue. I completely support it.

    Comments about "comic book villains" are profoundly ignorant. With the speed at which genomics and biotechnology is progressing, this will almost certainly be an issue within ten years. So why not get out ahead of it, and ban it now if people think it's unethical...BEFORE it becomes a major problem? This is the kind of far-sightedness that our governments should be doing MORE of.
