But "rough patch" hardly begins to describe all the bad news that has battered the agency over the past few months

When government regulatory agencies are infiltrated by those whom they are supposed to be regulating, it's not surprising when "stuff" happens. I blame a lot of it on soft money campaign donations. Stop the money flow; stop the I-O-U appointments to top-level positions of those with an agenda, and only then will the FDA (and while we're at it, let's not leave out the Dept. of Agriculture and the EPA, either) be back to what it's supposed to be.

I'm not holding my breath.
