FDA Looking Into Blindness-Viagra Link (Lauran Neergaard, May 27, 2005, AP)

Federal health officials are examining rare reports of blindness among some men using the impotence drugs Viagra and Cialis, a disclosure that comes at a time when the drug industry can ill afford negative publicity about another class of blockbuster medicines.

The Food and Drug Administration still is investigating, but has no evidence yet that the drug is to blame, said spokeswoman Susan Cruzan.

It would seem significant that all were soccer fans.

Why buy Viagra in order to indulge in self-abuse?

See? It is true.

Self-abuse? I thought OJ acknowledged yesterday that it was the non-soccer fans who were the self-abusers.

Oh well.

I would say well played and bad luck, except that wasn't even England's B-team. Somewhere between the C and D team.

Liked the look of Wolff on the left for the US, though. Seems a useful player.
