According to a May report by Seattle's KOMO-TV, formerOregon National Guardsman Gary Pfeider II is awaiting the results ofhis latest appeal to end the garnishment of his disability checks tocover $3,175 for gear he "lost" when he was shot in Iraq. Pfeider washit in the leg by a sniper in 2007, bled profusely, and was evacuated (and is awaiting his ninth surgery on the leg), but the Oregon Guardapparently believes that, despite his trauma, Pfeider somehow shouldhave paused to inventory the equipment he was carrying and to makearrangements fir its safekeeping during his imminent hospitalization.

TheNew Living Expo in San Francisco in May showcased such "healthy-living"breakthroughs as a $1,200 machine promising to suck toxins out of yourbody; a $249 silver amulet to protect you from "deadly" cell phoneradiation; and a $15,000 Turbo Sonic if your red blood cells need to be"de-clumped." A Canadian study at the same time found that 97 per centof the people who admitted buying "anti-aging" products did not thinkthey would work but nevertheless confessed their need to hope likethose who "hope" the viper-venom derived $525 Euoko Y-30 Intense LiftConcentrate will prolong their lives.
