Hesiod notes that Bill Frist is perhaps the one behind the provision in the Homeland Security Bill removing liability of Eli Lilly for any harm caused by thimerosal.

Dear Dr. Frist,

Didn't you take an oath, one which included some pithy phrase like "do no harm?"


UPDATE: It isn't clear he snuck it into the Homeland Security Bill, but he had previously sponsored it as a separate piece of legislation. Added word "perhaps" above.
