Bob Park still didn't write about the Dash case on cold fusion

Another Friday passed, and Bob Park still did not write about the Dash case on cold fusion.

Park did write about the COX-2 story:

-->This according to a ranking by Forbes. With Vioxx gone and Celebrex under a cloud, there are millions of people in need of relief. Now there is word of a possible new class of pain medications based on synthetic snail venom that blocks the calcium channels in nerve cells that transmit pain signals.<--

As to pain relief, Vioxx and Celebrex gave no more than other NSAIDs. Their benefit was not creating GI distress. Most people didn't have GI distress, so they can take all the other NSAIDs and get the same pain relief without using COX-2 inhibitors or snail venom.
