Free lunches.

I understand that the food industry has been hurt by the ban on pharmaceutical free lunches for doctors.  (I make fewer lunches a week thanks to this ban, and end up working fewer hours a year.)  I do think it's a good idea, especially when reading this article, this article, and this article.

But we all know that lobbyists have influence, and all it takes is one elected official to start the repeal train.  State Representative Brian Dempsey, start that pity party!  (I hope your doctor doesn't prescribe Crestor for your LDLs.  You might end up with diabetes.)

While we're on the subject of elected officials and repeal trains, a big shout out needs to go to 'Independent' Scott Brown.  Thanks for screwing up the Massachusetts budget, Senator.  Apparently yes means no and it also means screw you, Massachusetts.
