They have (a lot of) ads on TV here for prescription medicines. I thought I was used to this, until last night when I saw an ad for a genital herpes tablet. “Thanks to [product name], I’m outbreak free!” complete with uplifting music etc, and an announcer gently telling you all the possible side-effects. Makes you wonder how much extra they have to pay people to star in ads for herpes medicine.
In more mundane news, I took some more photos of the Croton and Hudson Rivers, and discovered that panoramas involving moving water don’t work terribly well.
