" I don't know what is so funny . 161,000 dead Americans is not a laughing matter.[/QUOTE] Dude, if you really cared about how many people are dying you wouldn't care at all about giving a drug that might work. Especially one that has been given safely to people for decades. And secondly, spare me the idea that scientists are never influenced by money, politics, or other selfish reasons. That's ridiculous to the point of hilarity. Last I checked they were people, with the same failings as the rest of us.
