    Pill vending machines? What a great idea! Rather than oppose the idea, chain drug stores like Walgreens should install the machines in their own stores as well. CVS could even contract with physician offices to install vending machines right in the doctor’s office.

    I agree that the no touch exam is probably a farce.

    Exactly what we need: the debt ceiling in song.

    One of the commenters on David Freidman’s blog said while performing colon cancer research for a PhD, he thought of the idea of a colonphone where a probe could be used to self-test for colon cancer. That’s taking self-care to a whole new level. Of course, the FDA would never allow consumers to self-diagnose conditions that are so serious.

    I think David Friedman’s idea is interesting. More generally, I am intrigued by the idea of patients taking moe control over testing and monitoring their own health.

    I think a drug vending machine is a great idea. I’m sure there are some security concerns, but, overall, I don’t see why pharmacists think they ought to be immune to gains in technology.

    Remy does it again. You can count on him to add humor to Washington. I hope he continues to work with Reason.
