Bioethicist: 'Right to Try' Law More Cruel Than Compassionate
Mon May 19, 2014
While I agree there are problems with "Right to Try Law", I am bothered by Dr. Caplan's discussion. First, there is more to the "Dallas Buyers" club; the drug maligned in the film is AZT, which is still part of modern AIDS therapy. The drug promoted, Peptide-T, is not.

Some states look at reviving firing squads amid shortage of execution drugs
Fri Jan 17, 2014
This seems to be a misinterpretation of "cruel and unusual". The intent of was to prevent deliberate torture not to prevent unpleasantness. If we agree that the death penalty is acceptable, then the obligation is not for it to be perfectly pleasant, but just no more unpleasant than needed to do the …
Poor people aren't stupid; bad decisions are from being overwhelmed, study finds
Thu Aug 29, 2013
What is described here seems like nonsense. Of course it is more difficult to perform one task if one is distracted by another. Wouldn't a wealthy CEO have similar difficulties if he were just told that the board was angry about some issue? Or a computer programmer told that there is a bug in his pa …

Anyone who spends the time trying to block the burial of a corpse lacks both the intelligence and the decency to be worthy of attention.
Funeral director in Boston bombing case used to serving the unwanted
Mon May 6, 2013
These people protesting the burial should get a life and stop disgracing our country. This is ludicrous, it is a dead body and not going to hurt anyone. The uncle is going through enough pain, let him bury is nephew and be done with it. I strongly object to my tax money flying a body back to Russia. …
Adding up the financial costs of the Boston bombings
