Dubious Commercial Logic

by Bryan

Let me paraphrase a commercial I just saw:

“Do you feel sad? Do you feel like there’s nothing you and do about it? You may suffer from depression. And it’s a myth that depression cannot be treated.”

Who said depression could not be treated? Anyone who owns a television — that is, the precise, huge demographic being targeted by the makers of whatever pill this is — is more or less constantly being told that their depression could be cured/treated/scared away by drugs.
