A drug to delete bad memories?

If so, I'd like to buy a caseload of it right away, because all that malt liquor just isn't doing the trick.

The accompanying article is well worth a read for its excursions into sci- fi history and pop- culture geekdom. I only wish that more reporting was done on a cross- disciplinary basis like this, with references to literature, history, and art -- the cult of professional neutrality and (supposed) objectivity has conspired to make most journalism in North America stultifyingly boring. If the mainstream media really wants to increase its younger readership, which is increasingly getting its news from more colourful sources online, this is the way.
