For some of us, The Rent's Too Damn High Party was a SNL skit. Turns out, there was/is such a party in New York. And you thought all the nutballs lived in California. My SNL consumption devolved to just tuning in for "Weekend Update", and when Fey and Meyers decamped, I've not seen it much.
But the Rent for drugs is Too Damn High. Pharma continues to spend more on SG&A than R&D. Billions of dollars to create a new drug? Most these days are re-working of existing with a pretty pink ribbon.
So, should we be surprised to find that Big Pharma couldn't do what real researchers can:
devise a cheap test for Zika.
