Ah...Questions We Might Get Answered

In one of my first TPS posts, I asked:
What if we cloned a small number of an extinct species Jurassic Park style, like the Dodo bird, would the Endangered Species Act require us to put them on the list?
It appears, we may soon find out:
Japanese scientists have produced clones of mice that have been dead and frozen for 16 years -- a feat that could lead researchers to one day resurrect long-extinct species, such as the mammoth.
Huzzah's all around! I recommend that the new political regimes devote 100% of their time, attention, and focus to developing a complete answer to this question.

I do believe that if you can measure the ADD of a government-- it's propensity to get involved in "non-government" type stuff-- I'd be willing to bet the more ADD, the more growth. If they're caring about cloning frozen mice, yes the private sector could handle it, but at least they're not regulating or taxing.

Yeah, I would like to know if congress interviewing MLB players over steroid has any similar correlation on the stock market as it does when congress is out of session.
