One is regarding the Vioxx liability issue for Merck (which speculation is whether Merck will even survive it). Looking at it from a pure "labor" standpoint, that would be awful. There are hundreds of union members ...

Does anybody recognise the language?

I have PPMS, use a cane and have an AFO. With the improvement in stamina, comes the improvement ...
