Let's Not Imagine Cloning John Lennon Just Yet

|Looks like him. Not him.|
No matter who he chooses, though, your unfortunate exercise opens the door to the most perverse possibility of all: that John Lennon 2.0 might actually hate John Lennon's music. This sounds like the bad ending of a Twilight Zone episode, one that need not be written.
One day, we may actually throw all caution to the hurricane wind and clone a human being. Not just tissue, but an entire person. Those first poor souls will have serious philosophical issues to overcome. Why also doom one to the impossible pressure of having to live up to Lennon's legacy?
In the end, I think Dr. Zuk should hole up with some of those Boris Karloff classics and see what happens when ego overpowers responsible, practical thinking. He was actually quoted as saying, "To potentially say I had a small part in bringing back one of rock's greatest stars would be mind-blowing."
You don't need your mind blown, you need it changed. Please don't make us chase an empty shell of a great man back to your lab with our fiery torches of disappointment and frustration.
