My father suffered through years of allergy shots to lessen the effects of ragweed exposure. That was an application of science. That was an application of reason. I am deeply offended by the utter stupidity in Robbie Busch's depiction of the greatest skeptics in literature since Sherlock Holmes embracing acupuncture as a means to cure Shaggy's allergies. Congratulations, you've just with one short story negated the entire core of Mystery Inc.

Even putting aside the stupid premise, Busch's story is about as effective as alternative medicine. The motive is ridiculous. The happy ending is ludicrous and does not gibe with what is seen: namely, a fake monster threatening somebody with a needle. [1]
