Cloned baby arrives in US

Yeah, I know, "allegedly cloned", at least until DNA tests can be performed. In any event, the baby and her mother arrived in Florida yesterday and were transported to a secure undisclosed location. Testing will be done later, at which point we'll know for sure if these folks are as fradulent as they are nutty.

Meanwhile, it's a good thing that they didn't arrive in Texas, where a bill has been filed to outlaw human cloning.

It's the second attempt by Sen. Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, to make cloning humans a first-degree felony, punishable by up to 99 years in prison and $10 million in civil penalties.

We sure know how to git tuff on crime around here, let me tell you. Hey, Jane, why not get together with Warren Chisum and see if you can join your bill with his? After all, why should Texas be forced to recognize anyone who was cloned in one of those decadent liberal states like Vermont if we don't want to?
