Losing Empathy

I was stuck in a doctor's office the other day and all they had to read was woman's magazines. You know the kind. Full of pictures of waifs in bikinis plus lots of beauty and relationship angst. Except for the breast reduction surgery before and after pictures. Well any way other than the bright spots (you know - the semi naked women) - not a lot of fun. So I was interested when I came across a bit about botox injections reducing the empathy of the injected.

...after Botox treatment, the subjects took more time to read the angry and sad sentences. Although the time difference was small, it was significant, he adds.
Could this explain why Nancy Pelosi seems so out of touch with the American people? Why their anger does not register well with her? Maybe.

What ever the case about her emotions the botox sure hasn't done a lot for her looks.
