Two-faced

I remember my grandmother telling me, “Don’t be two-faced.” That meant to not say one thing and do another. However, this article has nothing to do with that. First, from KOIN.com. http://www.koin.com/news.asp?RECORD_KEY[news]=ID&ID%5Bnews%5D=3072
Then, from KATU.com. http://www.katu.com/news/story.asp?ID=77861

A kitten with two faces! How horrible is that? How will it know which way to go? How will its vision be affected?

My thoughts wander first to the effects of nature on this poor creature. Is this simply a birth defect, or is this the result of something more overlooked such as contamination by water or air? I thought of other recent anomalies posted in the news from around the world. There was a two-headed turtle that I read about, and there have been numerous reports of two-headed or multi-legged frogs all across the globe. Radiation and continual waste dumping in streams and rivers are known to have had a significant effect on wildlife. But what about humans? Will there soon be photos posted of two-faced babies? My guess is probably not. That would be too horrific to see and face and ultimately admit to. Besides, I don’t think the Bush administration would want the public to know—at least not right away. It would become a rare birth defect, I’m certain.

Cover-ups. Ya got to love ‘em.
