Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

That's a throwback headline. An "extra" edition of a newspaper to report on breaking news? Our grandkids won't have a clue.

In any event, Alison Bass' new book, Side Effects: A Prosecutor, A Whistleblower, and A Bestselling Antidepressant On Trial, severely criticizes a couple of players in the pharmaceutical industry.

In his book review that appears on page A15 of today's Wall Street Journal, our own Herrmann explains that there are two sides to the antidepressant story, and Bass has told only one.

That's why Herrmann had an adverse reaction to Side Effects.

Pot, I would like to introduce you to the kettle. But you are right, there are two sides.
