Big Pharma Has Big Problems

The better part of me applauds the high principles of the ACLU, who supported Rush Limbaugh's attempts to keep his medical records closed to prosecutors who are trying to prove he "doctor shopped" 2000 pills from six doctors in four months. Rush argues that the case "threatens the privacy rights of all Floridians." Because, you know, he's all about the right to privacy.

The not-so-high-minded part was cheering like an English soccer hooligan when the Judge laughed his request out of court.

I know it's wrong. I just can't help it.
