Many Lives Are At Stake

Via Medpundit, it seems there's a new drug to worry about:

Anyway, I was at the doctor's yesterday for a checkup, feeling rather like I'd been skydiving sans chute, and she gave me a rather interesting prescription for getting my life back on track. It had five parts.

1. Exercise at least five times a week.
2. Before you go to bed, think of five things to be thankful for that happened during the day.
3. Be mindful while you eat (i.e., don't just snarf something down, but stop and enjoy it).
4. Set limits at work.

And then she asked me what I have enjoyed doing in the past, that I haven't done for a while.

I think she was expecting me to say gardening (ha!) or working on the house (ho!). Or some other manly pursuit that all my neighbors seem to do so naturally.

I said I missed blogging.

So, as a result, the last part of my prescription is:

5. Blog at least 15 minutes per day.

After extensive research, I have confirmed that this drug is not approved by the FDA. When reached for comment, commissioner Lester Crawford said, "it has only very recently been brought to my attention that this new drug is being prescribed without first undergoing the mandatory lengthy clinical trial process. I can assure you that the federal government will do everything in its power to get this drug off the market so that its safety and efficacy can be determined properly. Many lives are at stake, especially the lives of children."

Citing several recent studies that have indicated the possibility of potential for abuse of this drug, DEA Administrator Karen Tandy assured me "that proper measures are being undertaken to get this drug off the street and educate the public only of its harms. Many lives are at stake, especially the lives of children."

President Bush is confident that justice will be served.

"I have personally spoken with the Lord about this matter and God Almighty assured me that He would strike dead in his tracks any man who dares manufacture, sell, prescribe, or take this drug." Bush continued, "Many lives are at stake, especially the lives of children."

This may be my last post until the 7-year clinical trial process has been completed. And it's good I'll be a doctor by then, because the drug will most certainly be scheduled. I shall just have to dodge the lightning bolts in the meantime. It was fun while it lasted.
