Call me cynical but this story makes me angry and suspicious. Maybe I am just projecting my own concerns over my gram becoming a victim due to her Alzheimer's. The elderly are at such a disadvantage, just like children. They have to trust their caregivers and some caregivers just aren't trustworthy. Hopefully this was just an accident and coincidental but my gut is churning when I read this story."The opinion prevailed among advanced minds that it was time that belief should be replaced increasingly by knowledge; belief that did not itself rest on knowledge was superstition, and as such had to be opposed." - Albert Einstein
