    It was only a matter of time before these rabid "anti-vax" nutters started putting children besides their own at risk.

    Measles Resurgence Tied To Parents' Vaccine Fears : NPR

    Of course the anti-vax people are usually the same ones ratcheting up the hysteria on the faux autism "epidemic" as a sort of self-fulfilling prophesy.

    Anecdotally I've noted the radio ads run by propaganda mills such as Autism Speaks are broadcast by left-leaning stations. Seems that rampant paranoia and mistrust of government are not the sole purvey of the far right fringe.

    What a shame. Despite the autism link being debunked over and over again, this seems to be an urban legend that won't go away.

    People have forgotten how serious diseases like measles, chicken pox, and mumps are.

    I had all three as a kid. I had a friend whose sister died of chicken pox. I still have scars from my bout with it. My niece was diagnosed with shingles when she was 18...a complication of childhood chicken pox.

    i can't say i'm surprised. it was only a matter of time.

    and when it comes to people's fears about their kids, i think that crosses party lines.

    i just know that my kid gets vaccinated. and i hope that people start paying more attention to the fact that vaccines have been excluded as a cause of autism.
