Normally I tune out those annoying commercials for products you can order by phone for $19.99 plus shipping and handling. But the other night I happened upon an ad for something called My Lil Reminder, a minirecorder that helps you remember where you parked your car and what to get at the supermarket. You can watch the commercial online in order to appreciate not only the significance of the device but also the Oscar-worthy performances.
But as I sat and stared in amazement (and after two Scotches and a beer), I thought to myself, "Do these people realize they've just found a cure for Alzheimer's, dementia, and amnesia?"
