I have this recollection, probably not accurate as I was a probably 14 at the time, of seeing Dorothy Loudon on the Tonight Show singing a silly song that included the lyric, “Why can we send a man to the moon and we can’t cure acne?”

Just now, I was watching the news and saw that Caitlyn Jenner “won’t be charged in fatal February car accident.”

Thinking about Caitlyn made me think, “We still can’t cure acne, but we can change a person’s gender.”

I’m not saying someone should not be able to live in the skin they want, but It’s just curious how we manage to solve some problems and not others.
