I guess I never caught that bug where you’re only supposed to care about your own country or your own local area. To me, 49 decapitated Mexicans is just as bad as 49 decapitated Americans and I know if there were 49 decapitated Americans in the street anywhere in the country, it would be like 9/11 all over again. It would be the largest news story for years - if it just happened once - but it happens time and time again in Mexico… and I guess as long as Americans aren’t getting decapitated, apparently the rest of the country, and especially our media, couldn’t give a damn and that’s part of what’s sick and wrong with this country’s media. And so, we march on as if nothing is wrong, as if everything is hunky dory, as if the war on drugs makes sense and hasn’t created these grotesque gangs that grow larger and more grotesque by the day - and it’s not because of the drugs. It’s because the drugs are illegal.

UT scientist has found way to get paralyzed rats walking →

Progress!!!!

austinstatesman:

University of Texas researchers have found a new way to quickly repair damaged nerves in rats that might one day help people who suffer disabling injuries.

The same technique might also work on people who otherwise would be paralyzed by a spinal cord injury, but that would be more challenging to fix, experts said Monday.
