Is it not a remarkable coincidence that the efficacy of any medication tends
to decline in such a way that it reaches zero at the exact moment the patent
on that medication expires. Fortunately, there is always a new medication
with a fresh patent, that appears to be miraculously effective in treating
whatever malady the now-defunct medication once cured.
