No silk purse

October 25, 2006


To the editor:

In reference to the Wal-Mart spokeswoman's comments in the Oct. 23 Journal-World: "We have worked hard to preserve the land and provide additional landscaping to make it as nice as can be." I am reminded of a saying my elderly mother is fond of using. Perhaps you've heard it: "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."

Well... With the way cloning and stem cell research is progressing, we will be able to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear soon enough. Just you wait. Then who will be laughing? I will, me and my cloned sow ear silk purse. It's European!
