The 12 posts of pre-Christmas

Wednesday, 12 December, 2018

This year, like every year, Rainy Day has posted daily about the good, the bad and the ugly of life in this best of all possible worlds. Now, with 2018 drawing to a close, it’s time to look back at the year’s posts and in the coming 12 days of pre-Christmas we’ll be posting an item from each month this year, starting tomorrow with January, which began with the fireside reading of a thriller that turned out to be quite topical many months later even though it’s set in the year 2045. You see, it’s very much about CRISPR and genetic crime and black market labs in Asia that perform “vanity edits” on human embryos… for a price.
