Duh! Du Jour 

Two bits caught my attention over the last few days of not blogging that easily qualify as good examples of wasting money researching the bloody obvious. First, British scientists have found strong evidence that smokers are at greater risk of developing asthma. Pardon me while my earth is not the least bit shaken by this news. Second, researchers have finally established that overworked, underslept doctors-in-training make more errors and provide less excellent care. You mean people who are in severe physical and mental distress (and malfunction) don't make the best decisions? Wow!
