A hard time being unemployed

There’s always good to be had in bad times with knights in shining amour responding to damsels in distress, guardian angels protecting innocent little boys and girls, and good Samaritans coming to the aid of impoverished orphans and widows.

The latest example is pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. announcing yesterday its new program that will let people who have lost their jobs and health insurance keep taking some widely prescribed Pfizer medications – such as Viagra – for free for up to a year. Associated Press reported that Pfizer – the world’s biggest drug maker – will provide more than 70 of its prescription drugs at no cost to unemployed and uninsured Americans, regardless of income, who lost their jobs since January 1st and have been on the Pfizer drug for three months or more.

Some of these poor souls are going to have a hard time being unemployed.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
