Respectful Insolence

While I’m otherwise indisposed…

…take a gander at this post by Steve Novella about Gary Kompothecras and Charlie Crist and how they are endangering children’s health in Florida by promoting the father-son team of antivaccine pseudoscientists Mark and David Geier, the very same issue I wrote about yesterday.

Fear not. The end is in sight. The logorrheic insolence you know and love (or hate) will soon return. In the meantime, I really need some coffee.

    A major league woo-slinger has just launched a new vaccine “information” site intriguingly url’ed, “vaccineinitiative.com”….. I *wonder* why he called it that? (actually, I *know* why**). It gathers together examples of anti-vax ephemera like a misguided scavanger hunt. **( diversionary tactics: it sounds like several legitimate sites)

    Instead of studying chemical castration, I recommend that they conduct studies to see if sex is better than Prozac. At least there’s a possible basis for the hypothesis. See “An ode to the many evolved virtues of human semen”, Scientific American, by Jesse Bering (Sep 22, 2010), http://www.scientificamerican.com/blog/post.cfm?id=an-ode-to-the-many-evolved-virtues-2010-09-22. Further, it wouldn’t endanger kids’ health. And, it would a whole lot easier to recruit willing volunteers as test subjects for it.

    I had got a desire to make my own organization, but I didn’t have got enough of money to do that. Thank heaven my close friend proposed to utilize the loan. Thus I took the bank loan and made real my desire.
