Just heard on NBC news that the measles outbreak has spread to as many as 14 states. Seriously? Are people stupid? Are you not vaccinating your kids?
Part of the problem is that some years ago there was an article in the British medical journal Lancet that proposed that vaccinations contributed to autism. A significant number of American parents panicked and denied their kids vaccinations.
However the information contained in that article was found to be made up by the doctor who wrote it. It was completely false and the journal apologized for printing it. So why aren't people returning to vaccinations for their kids? It's simple. They're stupid. And as Ron White has told us, "There's no fixing stupid."
