Excellent post Shaw. I forwarded the article to many.

But it's too bad politics finds it's way into what should be totally non political issues. We are a strange and perplexing species.

What a surprise. The NBA sticking their guns where they don't belong once again, and the Senate Republicans enjoying it.

I wish you would allow comments on items like the "Close the Borders" one at the top!

And, on topic, you have the idiots working from some sort of medieval version of germ theory who still push the completely discredited vaccines=autism theory

Mot to mention these killer "nurses" fighting for a non-existent right to distribute possibly deadly diseases to patients. Even the SEIU has jumped on the anti-vaccine bandwagon.

Even without Ebola, there is bad science, superstition, and worse concerning diseases.
