Yes, I know it's been Photoshopped.

Absolutely a doctored photo. The American flag is reversed. If the flag was correctly positioned, the words would be backwards. Pretty amateurish attempt...

Obviously it is photoshopped, but the Flag patch on the right shoulder
is correct. The patch should have the union displayed as if the flag is going forward. as displayed.

actually, that's how the army wears the flag on their uniform.

don't ask me why, but the photo *has not* been reversed.

Generic drugs cheaper?

...than CANADIAN prices?

As regular readers know, I am against drug reimportation laws (on general principles, not because of a fear of "dangerous" drugs coming out of Canada). But a report shows that drugs whose patents have expired can be purchased here in the US for less than the Canadian brand-name drugs, and they are even less than Canadian generics (with the exception of a diabetes drug, whose American generic was significantly higher than the Canadian equivalent). This was a small study (it covered only seven drugs, although they were the best-selling drugs with generic equivalents) and it did not cover drugs still under a patent, but the results are interesting nonetheless.
