"Seduction" -- A Poem by a Stem Cell Scientist

At the request of the California Stem Cell Report, Basil Hantash, CEO of Escape Therapeutics, Inc., of Palo Alto, Ca., sent us this sample of the poetry he writes while not working on stem cell research.

(On Aug. 11, 2010, Hantash emailed us, asking us that the poem in this item be removed from the Web site. He said tended "to agree with the anonymous comment that it may not be an appropriate venue."
As a courtesy to him, we have removed the poem.

(We heartedly disagree with the anonymous comment. A narrow-minded focus hampers all of us -- not only scientist and policy wonks.)

    I think the poem, in this forum, is ridiculous.

    No offense to the author, but couldn't he have provided a sample that was a tad bit more appropos to an audience interested in the serious science of stem cell research and regenerative diseases?

    The State of California is as kooky as all get-out.
