I have been mentioning in my postings that the only thing that will ever bring this issue onto the national stage for serious debate and close examination and justified acknowledgment is publicity.
And here is my idea of a great "budget" minded way to start generating this publicity.
I recommend we run an advertisment for one year in the tabloid the National Enquirer that says this "If you feel you have been damaged by antibiotics Levaquin/Cipro contact this website"
Now, before you down-play the National Enquirer let me remind you that it has a readership of 10,000,000 + people a week!
These are average people who read this and that is a massive amount of readers. Sure, you can place an ad in a more "respected" newspaper with 1 tenth the readership and for 10 times the costs. But why?
It doesn't matter how you get the publicity out there. And the National Enquirer, although dismissed by many, is about the most highly read magazine in the country as well as the most affordable to advertize in.
Even a small "classified" ad if run long enough in this magazine will eventually gets tons of word-of-mouth publicity. And for about $120 a week, that is cheap.
If only 25 members here pitched in $5 a week we could do this. And no one can sue because this is in no way a libelous statement. It is simply asking a question. It states and asserts nothing. It is an objective question. It could just as well be a survey question, which in most ways it is.
But the "question" that we are all wanting to have an answer to ourselves here will be in the national media. It will be out there every week this question is asked. And that's the only way this problem we are all facing will ever be acknowledged on a national scale...when enough people are asking about it and it can no longer be avoided.
