From Stanford Magazine about Robert B. Laughlin’s new book, The Crime of Reason: And the Closing of the Scientific Mind:

Just wait until enough people read Laughlin’s suggestion that, in addition to the open announcements of cloned animals, β€œIt is very likely that we also got Hal (or Heather) the human. . . . There was, however, no public announcement of a cloned human, presumably because of the storm of public outrage that would have ensued.”

Is he serious? β€œI cannot prove it,” says Laughlin, throwing in a charming smile while emphasizing that the speculation is scientifically sound.
