This is why I don't pay attention to the news

So in an effort to try and keep track of things going on in the world outside my apartment, I've been actually spending time reading news online, which is kind of a new thing for me. I find the activity largely depressing (which, on reflection, I suppose means I'm being successful), but every once in a while I come across something interesting or noteworthy or, at times, completely baffling. For example, this Boston Globe article. Excerpt follows:
"Mayor Thomas M. Menino embarked on a highly public campaign yesterday to block CVS Corp. and other retailers from opening medical clinics inside their stores...

The decision by the state Public Health Council, 'jeopardizes patient safety,' Menino said in a written statement. 'Limited service medical clinics run by merchants in for-profit corporations will seriously compromise quality of care and hygiene. Allowing retailers to make money off of sick people is wrong.'" (emphasis mine)

It''s a drug store! I mean...I just...GAH!
