It occurs to me that California ballot initiative would prohibit (at least most) antibiotics, since most of them directly cause a die-off of intestinal flora, among others. That more or less being WHY you'd take antibiotics.
This Week's Quote: "The original founder of Greenpeace came out in favor of GM crops, and then he got kicked out of that organization because he recognized that, look, this is actually an environmentally-friendly technology that reduces the chemical load...The average consumer is unaware of the environmental benefits. You only hear about the possible environmental risks." —Colin Carter

I just ran across this this morning, although it's been floating around for a few years.
This guy has an interesting take on the recent financial crisis, and blames the spread from a modest problem with some bad mortgages (and how TARP definitely didn't help and things got substantially worse after it was put in place) to a near-collapse of the whole system on one specific, dangerous accounting rule that can result in momentary events flipping good debts bad and sticking the effects on the bad side when the momentary event passes.
