Homeopathy explained

Today's XKCD is an amusing poke at the quirks of us humans.  But one of the best things about XKCD is the mouse overs -- they're often better than the comic itself.  Today's is that way with a twist -- the alt text isn't funny, it's true and I wholeheartedly agree.

"I just noticed CVS has started stocking homeopathic pills on the same shelves with--and labeled similarly to--their actual medicine. Telling someone who trusts you that you're giving them medicine, when you know you’re not, because you want their money, isn’t just lying--it’s like an example you’d make up if you had to illustrate for a child why lying is wrong."
