In the news.

I know, it's been many weeks since my last post. Here are a few things I've read in the news recently that hopefully will tide you over until next I can write.

CNN Money ran a nice article about Melinda Gates.

An article from ABC News about drug companies withholding clinical trial information when the results don't go quite their way.

An opinion on CNET regarding Bill Gates' concept of "Creative Capitalism."

And a contrary opinion.

A new study may show that some antidepressants are not much better than placebo, even though they come with pretty bad side-effects.

An article in the Washington Post predicting that US Health Care costs will double by 2017, "reaching $4.3 trillion and accounting for 19.5 percent of the nation's gross domestic product."

Democrats in the US have been sweating the details over universal health insurance coverage, but what about the coming debate in the general election between liberals and conservatives over whether this even should be a national priority?
