US FDA:  Maybe It’s Time for the Hercules Solution…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 


In Greek mythology, Aegeas, the king of Elis, had a vast herd of cattle.  The stables in which they were kept hadn’t been cleaned in 30 years. By then it was impossible to clean them and the resulting stench was unbearable.  Hercules, who had been assigned 12 stupendous tasks (“the Labours of Hercules”) to be performed in atonement for a crime he had supposedly committed, came on the scene. One of those tasks was to clean the Aegean stables. Hercules did the job in one day by diverting a river to flow thorough the King’s stables.

The phrase “clean the Aegean stables” now means to clear away an accumulated mass of corruption – physical, moral, ethical, legal… Continue reading US FDA:  Maybe It’s Time for the Hercules Solution…
