News that Vexes

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Katrina Leaves Widespread Depression in Her Wake:

Well it's certainly sad to say "those who suffered the wrath of Hurricane Katrina didn't just lose their homes, they lost their families, their neighborhoods, their communities." But come on! Do we need a study to find out that many of these survivors are "depressed" !!?

This brilliance brought to us by Dr. Mindy Fullilove. With losses comes grief, sometimes "spectacularly high levels," Fullilove said. Shocking!

Here's an idea: How about if all these doctors and scientists who think people just might become depressed when everything they know and own is washed away drop their studies and join the Red Cross to try to improve the situation in New Orleans? Rebuilding damaged levees and homes adds more value than these vacuous studies.
