I love when a good linkdump theme comes together. Today, we’re talking about people that are full of baloney. Normally I would use a stronger word but “baloney” was handed to me in one of the links today and who am I to argue with such a perfect word.

The CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals doesn’t see the merit of questions about raising the price of the company’s 62-year-old toxoplasmosis medication from $13.50 per pill to $750. And this is why I’m glad I live in a country with a functioning health care system. (Washington Post)
