Thom, I listen to your radio program as often as I can and I very much admire the fact set that you bring to political discourse, which frequently lacks it.

Chemically, coumarin and coumadin are very different. That said, it is true that eating large amounts of coumarin in cinnamon or anything else isn't good for you. Here are the Wikipedia links on the subject:

Keep up the good work.
