The real problem with any kind of high profile case is that if we come out
looking bad (imagine that, with all the goodwill we have), then we could
become nothing more than fodder for some publicity seeking politico.
Better that we bide our time, try to remain as low profile as possible, make
some money and do some really basic research. We don't have to actually win
the big prize and revive some animal; all we have to do is do the basic
research that shows there is some *feasibility*.
