"cynical" and "prescription biz" . . . isn't that redundant?

Twain got it backwards. Many idiots are not members of Congress.

My hospital stocks plain ol' fish oil. I know, because I spent way more time than any rational person would wish to in the hospital during the past two years, and they never failed to give me my fish-oil capsule. It was on my list of prescription meds, having been prescribed by a succession of doctors.

But then I live in a state where most things are still done rationally. Not everything, mind you.
