What I find odd is that there ARE laws about truth in advertising. They just don't seem to be enforced much now.I recall when I was a teen (I think) Listerine was constantly in trouble with the feds. Listerine tried to claim they killed germs including those that could cause the common cold. Feds said "don't think so", and Listerine then said "maybe you won't feel as bad". Feds stepped in again and said "nope". Now Listerine kills the germs that cause bad breath.It would be nice if they were as vigilant with fast food joints and beer and medical stuff and reverse mortgages, etc (of course, Carl's Jr or McD's don't really lie, they just don't tell you everything). I suspect that's how they get around the law now: omission.1poorguy
