FDA Asks for Public Input
The Food and Drug Administration took out the Friday trash last week, announcing the deferral of the approval of the Plan B "morning after pill" at 3PM on a Friday and taking four questions before "abruptly" ending the news conference. So much for opening the debate to "public comment," though we have our doubts about going to the American people for advice on anyway; we'll end up with a law requiring pharmacists state that Plan B is "just a theory." A controversial and complicated scientific decision just doesn't seem like one of those things that should go to a popular vote -- look how we screwed up "Dancing with the Stars."
