Drug Channels will be back on January 4 with my Strategic Questions for 2010 along with our very first sponsor. In the meantime, I have something naughty and something nice to close out 2009.
Today's Wall Street Journal has a pungent review of the health care reform process in Change Nobody Believes In:
The rushed, secretive way that a bill this destructive and unpopular is being forced on the country shows that "reform" has devolved into the raw exercise of political power for the single purpose of permanently expanding the American entitlement state. An increasing roll of leaders in health care and business are looking on aghast at a bill that is so large and convoluted that no one can truly understand it, as Finance Chairman Max Baucus admitted on the floor last week. The only goal is to ram it into law while the political window is still open, and clean up the mess later.Yikes!
On the intentionally humorous side, here's a little holiday piece that I published in The Wall Street Jovial a few years ago:
Santa's Supply Chain Keeps Pace, Despite Change
Happy New Year!
