Letter: Hormones, monogamy a laugher

Most of the time the news is just too depressing to read. But every so often, the ADN makes me laugh out loud. The (Los Angeles Times) article on Nov. 15 about “Hormone may help protect monogamous relationships” was one of those. Seriously, we could stop universal cheating by upping a hormone? Wait, the article said we could only improve it by 612 inches … don’t want to go there, but I guess that would work!

I see it now, instead of carrying just pepper spray in your purse, you could also carry a spray bottle of “Anti-Stray” to spritz on your cheating louse. I can’t help it, it’s the mind picture: a bar full of gyrating bodies, the air, not full of bad cigarette smoke, but heavy with the scent of Anti-Stray. I want input into that advertising campaign. Stock options anyone? It’s going to be a runaway bestseller. 

It does continue to amaze me the things that we spend research money on. This week though, I’m sure poor Mrs. Petraeus would have thought this one was worth pursuing.
