You couldn't WRITE a better headline than: "Viagra causes blindness". I 
laughed for a long time when I read that last week.

Anyway, if this is true, and they take it off the market as Andy hopes, 
wouldn't the existence of Cialis and the other 'ED' drugs (that so far, 
DON'T cause blindness) which were subsequently marketed ACTUALLY an 
improvement? Forget for a minute whether a stiffy at eighty is a good thing 
or not, doesn't the existence of slightly different drugs in this case, 
actually shoot down Andy's former arguments about tweaking and patenting?
