Epstein's death isn't par for the course, Shane.  The particular jail he was being held in doesn't have suicides occurring because of neglect.  It hadn't had a completed suicide in decades.

The chiropractic law sounds very much like the original (and substantially still intact) enabling law behind the FDA, which explicitly excludes homeopathic preperations and processes from their purview...and was written by a homeopath.

And, oh, OK, that's actually a rather clever bit of satire.  And the problem with the Patent and Trademark Office is mostly that they're supposed to assume the applications are valid and in good faith, which trying to trademark the generic use of the word 'THE' is not.  Trademark the full name of the university?  Sure, you can do that, just like any other business can (as long as it IS a business and not a government agency, which cannot be trademarked).  But just a generic word?  Good luck with the legal penalties for making someone file suit.  The claim is SO week is seems inevitable that costs and fees would be awarded to just about anyone who brought such a case.  There's also a very real possibility of a claim being made that any conceivable defense would constitute contempt of court (yes, you CAN be held in contempt if you make an argument sufficiently absurd as to be insulting to the court).
