Hwang's Loud Lies

Here at Vital Signs Blog, the story was first spelled out two weeks before it caught on with the world's press but the heat has finally blazed forth from headlines everywhere to burn up the reputation and phony results of Hwang Woo-Suk, former media darling and South Korea hero -- hero, that is, until his "research" into embryonic stem cell and cloning turned out to be brazenly fraudulent.

This fine story by Wesley J. Smith over at The Weekly Standard makes a fine review as well as a great "send around" tip for your friends. For those who have passed over the story so far, do take the 5 minutes neccessary to get up to speed by reading Mr. Smith's well-written article.
