We would hope that Dr. Victor Tapson, as a member of Academia at Duke University would be on the side of the people in matters of common good. How come that reportedly he has become a paid lobbyist for Sanofi blocking the release by the FDA of a generic blood-thinner. We wonder how many other members of the Academia have succumbed to the lure of big money and become mouth-pieces against the interest of the people. We still believe in the overall goodness and integrity of people in the Academia.

Thanks, Bill. We were using the wrong symbol with irony.

A nitpick. You're showing the wrong symbol, you want the Rod of Asclepius http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_of_Asclepius which only has one snake.
