Tuesday Morning Quarterback

Would the Green Room for Sleep Actors Have Bunks and Pillows?: Ads for the new sleep aid Lunesta show a woman slumbering blissfully as a glowing luna moth hovers above her. Is a luna moth really the best image? The luna moth is nocturnal but incapable of sleeping, or eating for that matter; as the adult stage of a caterpillar, the luna moth mates for about a week, then dies. Probably the Lunesta documentation does not caution, "Side effects may include inability to eat plus frenzied mating followed by rapid death."
