bad fat, bad medicene, bad news

In this article by the New York Times, the effectiveness of cholesterol-lowering medications is called into question by prominent cardiologists. Cholesterol-lowering drugs are the largest category of prescription medication with annual sales of $40 billion.

Eating oatmeal and exercising, in my unhumble opinion, is probably safer and more effective than these relatively poorly vetted drugs.

They had a woman on the radio complaining that school bus routes had been cut. Because of the cuts she now had to walk her children to school from her trailer (no shit, her trailer) which is a 1/2 hour walk. This is the real problem. People don't want to get off their lazy asses and move around.
