Rock Weekly: Stay classy, healthcare

August 6th, 2012
Last week’s healthcare headlines were more reminiscent of an episode of Nip/Tuck than Doogie Howser. First, it was announced thata top FDA official was arrested on four counts of soliciting prostitution. Then a Bristol-Myers exec was charged with insider trading. Keep it classy, healthcare.
