For once, let’s cram it down the politicians' throats

St. Louis Children’s Hospital no longer uses sedated cats in teaching how to insert breathing tubes into the throats of infants. Among the alternatives proposed was sophisticated mannequins. I am quite confessedly on the side of the cats. And if lifelike imitations won’t serve to spare them the pain and indignity of tubes being stuck down their throats, I can suggest an alternative. Use politicians.
