Pellegrino will take over from Kass

The President intends to appoint Edmund D. Pellegrino, of New York, to be a Member of the President's Council on Bioethics. Upon appointment, the President intends to designate him Chairperson.

My favorite bioethics blog seems happy with the choice. Fine. But no need to disparage Kass like they did. Just because Kass has a different view of how bio-ethics should be practiced than Caplan, doesn't mean Kass deserves to be trashed as a political operative. Shame on AJOB.
