Pharmaceutical Sanity

An interesting new blog I've added to my Favorite Sanity on the right: In the Pipeline.

Good question, with hard answers, but one answer that is clearly wrong (with a touch of sarcasm):

If Drug X saves 10,000 lives a year, at the cost of killing 100 people a year who are susceptible to its side effects, what should we do? Look for alternatives, surely. Try to identify (in advance) those at risk, of course. Try to come up with a newer analog with an even better profile, naturally. Oh yeah, and sue the pharmaceutical company until they're flat on the ground. That, too.

Hillary in '08!
