Douglas Burns now writing column for Cityview

Just an FYI.

I am now writing a regular column and doing some other freelance work for Cityview in Des Moines.

The first column Cityview published is one I did on the ethics of full face transplants. Here is some of that:

The latest installment in the ongoing “yes, it really can happen” series in which science fiction turns into practical application, dime-store novel plots and screenwriters’ narcotics-fueled brainstorms become the substantive stuff of news features, is this: face transplants.

We’re not talking about a little skin here and a little there to cover the burn from the factory fire. No, this is a full-fledged deal. Apparently, one can get a whole new face, someone else’s mug in fact.
