As a physician I am always mindful of newly discovered side effects to drugs. It seems one has been displayed in the national media.

Then-Sen. John Kerry derided the incursion into Iraq despite the use of chemical weapons on the Kurds, deploring the death of the last soldier “to die for a mistake.”

Now comes Secretary of State Kerry, with his newly acquired, obviously Botoxed face, explaining the need for belligerent action in Syria for the same type of weapons. Perhaps these are even the same weapons, slipped out of Iraq a decade ago.

I suspect my plastic surgery and dermatology colleagues will need to add a new potential complication to Botox use: memory loss.
