More Weirdities

Today just seems to be shaping up as weirdness in the medical world.

While I'm not trying to take sides online in the animal rights vs. medical research issue, this article today caught my attention.

A group of animal rights activist in Switzerland have targeted the CEO of Novartis pharmaceuticals by (among other things) stealing his mother's ashes!

A tactic used in the UK. Those very ethical people dug up the body of an elderly relative of the family running a farm which bred guinea pigs for research and reburied it in unconsecrated ground. Sentence 12 years. Details at: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2006/may/12/animalwelfare.topstories3
