We read today that the GAO has found the FDA's review of the proposal to distribute the Plan B "morning-after pill" without a prescription "unusual." What struck us: FDA staff was told by senior officials that the application "was to be rejected before the staff completed its scientific review and months before the decision was made public." Burying the lead here -- forget about Plan B, what are the FDA officials taking that makes them psychic?! We want a prescription for that. It would eliminate the need for Plan B, if nothing else... "Man, if I had known he was going to get me knocked up, I totally wouldn't have had those last two Zimas"!
Oh, just kidding. FDA officials aren't psychic. They're crooked.
