Westby Fisher, a Northwestern University cardiologist and blogger, rips into the American Heart Association after a patient left a page from one of the AHA's publications on his desk.
The page in question (left) reviews a study that looked into whether or not iPods effect pacemaker function. Apparently the music players showed some effect, but none of the patients tested experienced any symptoms. Fisher calls this sort of cursory review fear-mongering on the AHA's part.—Gregory Mone

Ron Stark couldn't believe it. A woman was approaching him holding a rare piece of original animation from Walt Disney's Fantasia. "It was Mickey Mouse from 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice,' and she was waving it around like a piece of salami. Flakes of paint were sprinkling off of it," he recalls. "What do I do?" she asked. "Well, the first thing you do," he replied, "is hold it flat."
