Astra Zeneca has a lot of cojones printing a pink ribbon sticker, while they spend twice as much on marketing as they do on research. Yeah, we're working towards a cure-as long as it doesn't interfere with quarterly profits.

Interesting program on “A Way With Words” this week. One caller was asking if “disadulation” was a word. It apparently was coined on “The Office”, a show I should probably watch.
