a spoonful of sugar (pills) helps the placebo, err, medicine go down…

Can’t say I was surprised by the latest news from the world of voodoo-medicine.  But what I’m really curious about is the timing. As one whose personality (and mood) is often influenced by the amount of caffeine taken into my system, I think it is more than coincidence that the big announcement was made on the same day Starbucks chose to close all its locations for three hours to energize employees with some re-education. (Re-education – doesn’t that sorta remind you of what happened when the U.S. vacated Southeast Asia and the loonies took over various countries?) During my midday stroll around downtown I steered clear of high-rises with ledges.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
