F.D.A. Defers Final Decision About Implants (New York Times)
In a story about the F.D.A. holding off of approving silicone breast implants:
Many people expected the agency to follow the recommendation of its advisory committee, which is its usual practice. But the implant issue was particular fractious.
“This was a very visible product, and we had input from almost everybody and anybody,” Dr. Feigal said.
[Dr. David Feigal is an official of the Food and Drug Administration]

Did the good doctor realize that he was (gasp!) talking about breast implants? Hmm. And how “visible” was he talking about? And, of course, this comes from a man – no surprise! (in that sad, predictable sense). 😉
