    Following in the footsteps of intellectual giants like Barbra Streisand and Sean Penn -- who have apparently convinced themselves that standing in front of a camera and reading lines that someone else wrote for you qualifies you to give advice on foreign policy -- world-renowned holistic health guru, Dr. Deepak Chopra, has somehow managed to parlay his ability to cure sore throats into making my blood pressure spike to gasket-blowing levels.
