Let's all get up and dance to a song

From the USA Toady:

Pfizer finds no proof Viagra causes blindness
NEW YORK (AP) — Pfizer (PFE) said Tuesday a review has concluded that Viagra doesn't increase patients' risk of blindness but that it is still working with federal regulators to update the drug's label to reflect rare reports of vision loss.

Last month, the Food and Drug Administration said it had 38 reports of blindness caused by a condition called NAION, or non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, among users of Viagra.

I dunno anything about "ischemic neuropathy," but I knew obvious stuff like this years ago. Of course, back then we didn't have any fancy college-boy acronyms like NAION ... we just called it "Shaking hands with the boss."
Jeez, didn't anyone at Pfizer have a mother to warn them about this?
