I think you're being a little hard on the intrepid Ms. Hayes, Rep. Having once worked in the pharmaceutical industry and having seen headlines like that, I think one must remember that she is likely working hard to appropriately engage her audience. You are not their target audience, so the headline doesn't resonate with you. But it doubtless has cardiologists--and the publications that serve them--salivating. I think that's valuable, and right on the mark from a PR perspective.
As a recovering Catholic and erstwhile altar boy myself, Rep, I can only say "bravo" to you insight.

I do hope you take a moment (not that he deserves it) to share your thoughts with him so that he might become a little smarter.

Agree with you wholeheartedly, Rep. Another piece of flotsam and/or jetsam: the game-player badge. To whit: "Tom just earned the 'Top Kneecap Breaker' badge in Mafia Wars." Who the hell cares?

And I understand that the effect of studies on lab rats was essentially a 95% mortality rate...

I think the financial service industry is rapidly closing in on the airline industry (and perhaps NJ Transit, as Steve often notes) as providing some of the worst customer service. I was just reading an article about folks with no mortgage who are being foreclosed on and having their credit ruined by unfeeling lending institutions. I think it's because lending institutions don't view their clients as clients--they see them as financially inept shmucks who owe them money (and who they have by the short hairs) and treat them as such. I found a certain attitude change, too, when my loans came due. When you're in college its, "Focus on your education--worry about the loans later." When you're out of school it's, "Youse got a job now, so let's have wit my *&%$@ money." A very rude awakening for a college grad who has not yet been jaded by the realities of life.
