Great news about the Nobel Prize

Put aside (for now) justified complaints and doubts about some Nobel Prize winners.  The announcement that the Prize this year in Medicine is going to Dr. Shinya Yamanaka is great news, as Will Saletan explains.  Yamanaka (among other things) "showed how 'induced pluripotent stem cells' could be derived from adult cells and potentially substituted, in research and therapy, for embryonic stem cells."

The President, I hope, will revisit his earlier decision to overturn his predecessor's Executive Order promoting this sort of research.
