Stu BYkofsky’s mad as hell and is not going to take it anymore. In a prime angry rant inside the pages of the Philadelphia Daily News, the local institution gets all Fast Food Nation on us:
We are in a Brave New World of biotechnology, some of it good (I guess), some of it bad (I’m sure). Before you accuse me of shaking my fist in the air to damn progress, first prove it is progress, and not just change, which is doing something just because scientists can do it.
When it comes to synthetic hormones and cloning, you can find experts to say it’s the best thing since the Paris Hilton sex tape and opposing experts to say it’s the worst thing since … the Paris Hilton sex tape.
Science doesn’t know everything. It couldn’t explain Hillary Clinton’s short-lived giggle, for example. Science gave us Velcro, iPhones and zero-calorie soda. It also gave us thalidomide, junkpiles of radioactive waste and drugs intended to relieve one symptom that also spur suicide.
You hear that, people? Stu Bykofsky has two things and two things only on hi mind: Bio-genetically engineered food… and Paris Hilton.
I’ll pass on Frankenstein food, thanks [Daily News]
