Homeopathy claims water can cure you, because it once held medicine. That's like saying you can eat off an empty plate because it once held food. Cut it out, people!
Homeopathic products are remarkably common in health food and supplement stores. And who hasn’t bought something on a lark at one of those places, right?
If you don’t know what homeopathy means, here goes: you start out with some presumably active compound mixed with water, then you dilute it with more water … ridiculously more water* … with the idea being that the more diluted it is the better it works.
Yeah … right … ‘cause that worked so well when my mom would try and stretch the Kool Aid when I was a kid.

The federal government, which has Tomahawk cruise missiles and Apache and Lakota helicopters, used the code name "Geronimo" in the attack that killed Osama bin Laden but objected to the name of the Washington Redskins. … A U.S. Forest Service article on safe marshmallow toasting did not neglect to nag us: It suggested fruit rather than chocolate in s’mores.
Niagara County, N.Y., spent $700,000 of its Tobacco Master Settlement Money not on fighting smoking but on golf course equipment. In Seattle, the Freedom Socialist Party, which favors a $20-an-hour minimum wage, advertised a job opening for a Web developer to be paid $13 an hour.
[Vice President] Joe Biden … the former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee expressed optimism about "the nation of Africa."
… Colorado Springs second-graders invited to use their imaginations in seeing shapes in clouds. Kody Smith said one looked like a gun. So, a behavior report was filed against the 8-year-old.
I grew up one county over from Niagara county, and still have cousins and in-laws that live there. That county has been down on its luck for decades, and near as I can figure, it’s the non-smokers who move away from places like that. And like most places in upstate New York, it already has plenty of public golf courses. Using money garnered from tobacco sales (mostly to the poor) to spruce up golf courses (mostly for the rich) is patently offensive.
