Get Out There and Vote

Today is election day across the country. Here in Florida, we have a tight gubernatorial race, numerous congressional races, a lopsided Senate race, and a handful of local races for the Florida Legislature and local judicial spots. However, the process only works if you exercise your right to vote. We’re all tired of the robo calls, the nasty tv ads, and the incessant spin. No one said democracy is perfect but it’s the best system going. Voting is more than a right it’s a duty for us who live in a free society.

Bausch & Lomb’s Failure to Report

According to a federal warning letter, Bausch & Lomb, the maker of ReNu contact lens solution, failed to report more than 35 foreign cases of fungal eye infection. According to an Associated Press report, “Bausch & Lomb didn’t report the 35 serious injury reports by April 7, as required by law, after Singapore health officials had alerted the Rochester, N.Y. company, the Food and Drug Administration said in the letter. The reporting failure occurred after the company had suspended sales of its ReNu with MoistureLoc solution in Singapore.”
