In Some Cases, Not the Worst Idea

Thanks to the British researchers who claim to have created viable human sperm from stem cells, we are once again encouraged to say so long to natural fathers. [Earlier: Gifts that Keep on Giving ... With Limits; Today's Betting Line; and No Good Procreators]

While on the one hand it seems unlikely we'll be rushing into a situation anytime soon where we say goodbye to natural pops, there is at least a moment every once in a while when it doesn't seem like a bad idea — such as when you hear about the guy who asked his son to help him dump the body of the prostitute he picked up and killed.
