(un)Conspicuous (un)Conspiracy

Driving and listening to the radio on my drive down to Atlanta, an advert for a new product came on the air. The drug works to combat the ringing in your ears that you get after prolonged exposure to loud noises like you have working construction or at a concert. I have but one problem with it.

Quietus.

That is what they are calling it. That also happens to be the suicide assistance program in the book and movie “Children of Men” by P.D. James. I was a bit freaked out, so I called the toll free number to talk to the sales rep, to let her supervisor know. I mean really? Did they do NO research? Not as if most of the target audience of the drug was also the target audience of the movie, but still. Really?
