Bump in the Beltway's Melanie: "Things that make me go grrrrr"

It's always a risk having your image
appear under the words "Bone Health"

Thanks, Melanie! Hilarious and true!

Is it just me, or is that Boniva commercial with Sally Field not the most annoying ad in a world of annoying ads? The whole notion that "setting aside time" once a week to take a pill is onerous is ridiculous. I "set aside time" every morning to take my multivitamin. It takes 5 seconds with my juice in the morning. Selling this drug (which is a good drug, I guess) to women this way makes us look like complete ninnies.
