Genetics Ethics in LA


If you're in Los Angeles this Sunday, drop by Rocco in Hollywood for "In Our Image: Extreme Genetics," a Rhizome.LA event. A heated panel discussion is sure to take place between Natalie Bookchin, Cheryl Kerfeld, David Kremers, and Ruth West. The group will chat about such controversial topics as animals with vegetable genes and vice versa, getting oneself cloned, and how art can or can't make a difference in the debates on man-altered biology. Rocco's is at 6320 Santa Monica Blvd. (just west of Vine St.), and everything starts at 5pm. Bring $5-10 for the sliding scale donation.
