1. FDA Considers Holding Homeopathy Up To Rigorous Standards Of Reality
After a quarter-century, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering changing its stance on homeopathic remedies and requiring their approval to be based upon science and evidence instead of wishful thinking and good intentions.

2. Jon Stewart Was Annoyed That Jon Stewart Let Donald Rumsfeld Get Off Easy
Soon-to-be-departing Daily Show host Jon Stewart recently divulged that his single biggest regret during his sixteen years on the show was not pushing former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld harder on the war in Iraq during a 2011 interview. "That interview with Rumsfeld went shitty, but it's still just an interview," Stewart told the Guardian. "He's the one who has to live with the repercussions of what he really did, so there's nothing that could happen on my show that carries that same level of regret." True, and Rumsfeld is almost certainly a wreck over the whole ordeal.
“Donald Rumsfeld. Love him or hate him, you've gotta admit: a lot of people hate him." ― Jon Stewart #politics #quotes
