Things that make you go hmmm.....

From the Wall Street Journal Online comes the following blurb...

"Pfizer stock declined after the FDA said it is examining rare reports of blindness among impotence-drug users."

Way back when didn't "they" say something about going blind? Athough if you suffer from ED doesn't it seem a bit extreme to be using Viagra when you're all alone?

Democracy, EU-style...

Well the enlightened apparatchiks that run the EU have shown their complete lack of comprehension of representative government along with their utter contempt for anyone that disagrees with them. From the Financial Times

"France and the Netherlands should re-run their referendums to obtain the "right answer" if their voters reject Europe's constitutional treaty in imminent national ballots, Jean-Claude Juncker, the holder of the EU presidency, said on Wednesday.
The Luxembourg prime minister said all 25 EU member countries should continue their attempts to ratify the treaty whatever the outcome of the French and Dutch votes.
His comments reflect a mood of deepening pessimism among Europe's leaders about the outcome of the referendums.
"The countries which have said No will have to ask themselves the question again. And if we don't manage to find the right answer, the treaty will not enter into force," he said in an interview with the Belgian Le Soir newspaper. "

If senior EU officials have the stones to make public statements like this now, just imagine the totalitarian horror that awaits the poor citizens of "Europe" if this is ever officially ratified.
