    med errors

    Once again, dude, you only humiliate yourself with your stupidity.

    NHTSA and FMVSS regulations were enacted to force vehicle manufacturers to do something to eliminate the needless deaths of their customers. Just like Walgreens and some other retail pharmacy chains are documented to injure and kill too many of their pharmacy customers. And seem to need some measure of control to react and improve, since they are apparently unwilling or unprepared to manage their own business(es) responsibly.

    Did seat belts help vehicle deaths? How about airbags? How about the Ford Pinto plastic gastank issue; would Ford have fixed it without intervention?

    And... da, da... there is the everpopular flashpoint of gun-control to fire up the pro-Waggie pumpers! Well, bad news for you again, there, dude, but gun control focuses on the gun retailers, not manufacturers... just like it should in Pharmacyland.

    Personal responsibility is a board level issue. I do not sit on Walgreens board.

    But I am smart enough to recognize that insufficient focus is placed by Walgreens on the safety of getting a prescription filled in their stores. If you want to dispute that, feel free to challenge the extensive data presented in the 4-part USDA Today series.

    Tata,

    Yank
