Why even a killer like Richard III deserves a really good send-off 

History, we are always being advised around here, is written by the victors. But that old Churchillian line is massively simplistic. True, the rights and wrongs of historical events and players are often contested by special interest groups and occasionally conspiracy theorists, but generally evil-doing is hard to argue away. Even with that other worn old line we're constantly bombarded with again around here. The line about how one man's killer is another man's freedom fighter.

Ignore the frightening label, Three Parent Baby will offer families real hope 

A French couple recently made global headlines over their decision to call their baby girl Nutella. After the chocolate spread. Still. There are worse things in the world you can call a child. Three Parent Baby for starters. As if having one doting da and one doting ma posting cute videos of their little cherub on Facebook wasn't enough, along now comes Three Parent Baby who really does sound like a very scary new kid on the block.
