Therapeutic Cloning Reproductive Cloning
942 wordsIn his 1930 s futuristic novel, Brave New World, Aldous Huxley predicted a society where the human race was created in a laboratory and carried to term in incubators.

Middle Aged Man Entire Play
687 wordsI>Folly- Any foolish and useless but expensive undertaking The play Talley's Folly, in my opinion, is just that a folly. However the play would be better named "Wilson's Folly" for the writer, Lanford Wilson. I had several objections to this play being considered a classic. It was composed of nothing but petty details in dialogue. It also had no plot or any creative twists to it that would make a reader want to continue to read the play, and consisted of two surpassingly ordinary and one ove...
