RE: Frank and Dodd as ethical paragons.
I share you sense of irony about Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd being viewed as ethical paragons. In a sane and ethical world, these two would be cast out of office, and have a government uniform and other benefits. In Sing Sing.
On another note, it was short shrift given to Dr. Longino Soto Pacheco the famous doctor you characterized as one of the most important medical people in the century. I salute you for calling his passing to our attention, but a more complete description of his many accomplishments would have been more fitting and appropriate.
