Turned up to eleven: Fair and Balanced

UC Santa Cruz had a fire that burned down a human genetics lab, destroying years of work. Glenn Reynolds (link at left) suspects eco-terror. I suspect animal rights terror, but not much difference, right? When I was at U. of Minnesota, we had an attack on a genetics lab (not my lab, tho) by ALF (Animal Liberation Front, not the sitcom alien). They ruined years of brain research, and set "free" some lab rats, mice and birds, that promptly got killed, either by predators or by cars (since they didn't know enough to get out of the way. If there was a nefarious cause of this incident (not known yet), I hope the people responsible are held to the "Al-Qaeda" standard, and are treated as terrorists. Who knows how many people may suffer and die because of this stupidity?? What a shame
