Only a Distant Memory?

New research has yielded a rather stunning advance - the ability to "erase" a specific memory. In mice, for the moment, but wow.

It seems almost Haitian, for Heroes fans out there...

Not to burst the researchers' bubble, of course, but I think the technology might already be in use, targeting things like the definition of a free market (Pres. Bush, et al).

Or the text of the Constitution, or the idea of self-reliance (anyone who's been through public school).

I might be signing up when they start human trials...
