Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi looks in the mirror and sees a playboy of the old school.

There's an opportunity for the pharmacist to play a much greater role in health care, especially with what we have going on in this country with the shortage of primary-care physicians.
When people talk, they lay lines on each other, do a lot of role playing, sidestep, shilly-shally and engage in all manner of vagueness and innuendo.

Design should not dominate things, should not dominate people. It should help people. That's its role.
