Safire: From politics to books, my 2004 picks

William Safire's New Year's prediction column is always a hoot. This year's outing was no exception. Apart from his prediction of the Academy Award for "Best Picture" ("Mystic River" -- my youngest son concurs), note item 8:
8. The scientific advance of the year will be (a) age retardation enhanced by memory protection; (b) a single pill combining erectile dysfunction treatment with a fast-acting aphrodisiac; (c) neuroscientists' creation of a unified field theory of the brain; (d) the awakening of geneticists to the liberating study of bioethics.
Safire's answer? (d)
