Miracle Cure?

Medical news from France gives me hope that all is not lost for this once proud nation:

Doctors in France said they had performed the world's first partial face transplant, forging into a risky medical frontier with their operation on a woman disfigured by a dog bite.

In a nation of two-faced bureaucrats and politicians, there were plenty of donors, of course.

Doctors raised hopes that one day they might actually be able to transplant spines into French leaders.

Sadly, that advance is only in the research stage.

Further complications include finding suitable donors in the EU. The Dutch appear to be ruled out as donors at this point.

I, of course, wish the woman only the best ...
