Since I have a couple of minutes at the start of this hectic weekend


* Binkies cut SIDS(Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) risk. This works across the board, even for babies of mothers who smoke, put them on their tummies, put them in soft bedding, whatever. Of course, to play it safe, do everything you can to cut SIDS(Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
* ElBaradei (chief IAEA(International Atomic Energy Agency) weapons inspector) “accepts the Nobel Peace Prize”:http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=1392628. Quick, call the 101 Keyboard Brigade to battle stations in the whineosphere!
* Lonely? “This man”:http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/10/politics/10lieberman.html?ei=5094&en=a05a3618d4469a01&hp=&ex=1134190800&adxnnl=1&partner=homepage&adxnnlx=1134223867-N/L2nF+y6jvJ/jMo1E1aSw knows how you feel.
* Did Merck try to “hide three heart attack cases”:http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-vioxx11dec10,1,912832.story?coll=la-headlines-business. “This man”:http://www.corante.com/pipeline/archives/2005/12/09/a_vioxx_bomb_drops_or_does_it.php doesn’t think so, and I’m inclined to agree. The FDA approves marketing for pharmaceuticals, not the NEJM. Misstep on Merck’s part? Yeah. Pretty dumb? You bet. Unethical, evil, vile, and deserving of a billion-dollar judgment against them? No.
