Who's Counting, Part One?

Top Psychiatrist Didn’t Report Drug Makers’ Pay

Now, doesn't that just say it all.

Here's the first paragraph from this morning's NY Times.

One of the nation’s most influential psychiatrists earned more than $2.8 million in consulting arrangements with drug makers from 2000 to 2007, failed to report at least $1.2 million of that income to his university and violated federal research rules, according to documents provided to Congressional investigators.

Read the rest of this sordid tale here.

And then consider what tip of what iceberg this signals.

How many shrinks have prescribed how many millions of useless, harmful pills to how many unsuspecting patients because they were paid - BRIBED - how many millions of dollars to do so.

Once all the geniuses figure out how to dismantle the illegal drug trade (like, not in the known next 180 billion light years), they can go to work on these licensed immoral pushers.
