The Daily Word in Fuzzy Ethics, Cat Tongues and Awful News

The Daily Word

Researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University have successfully removed HIV DNA from the cells of living animals. That's a game-changer, folks.

Every cat owner knows the pain of being unable to lick their feline buddy. Thank the stars someone was brave enough to develop a tongue-shaped cat brush that you hold in your mouth!

Obama authorized a drone-strike yesterday that apparently "took care of" the leader of the Taliban. Most of the time, real life sounds like a rap video. Blat blat, mother mother.

According to Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, it's actually harder to remember the unethical things you've done. That's right. When you lie, steal or cheat, your brain does its best to fudge up the details so you can still think you're a good person. Real talk: You're not.

Speaking of terrible people: Erica Garcia, a 29-year-old ABQ resident who got her 15 minutes of fame three years ago when she left her baby in a hot car, allegedly flipped her vehicle over at Mountain and Woodward yesterday. She told officers she drank 30 beers before the accident. Oh, did I mention there was a two-year-old riding with her, and that they didn't have a seat belt on? The child was critically injured and is currently fighting for their life in the hospital.

The news is foul. Put your phone down and go outside, instead. It's beautiful out there.
