Meanwhile, on the health front...

Sorry, libertarians. But legalizing pot is a really, really bad idea. In case you've forgotten, it has really bad effects on teenagers' memories.

Oh. And the FDA is warning us to stop using antibacterial soap- which, along with killing germs which ordinary soap also does a fine job of killing, nukes beneficial bacteria which help us with digestion and other normal bodily functions as well, and contains substances which may mess with our hormonal balance and otherwise poison us.

The inadvisability of using antibacterial soap is nothing new. Interesting, though, how much more powerful the industry is than the medical community in informing the public on the issue.
