In other news, the world is still insane.

It really does sadden me that people are so desperate to put the blame on something, or someone, as opposed to just plain old shitty chance that they are willing to ignore Dr Andrew Wakefield’s catalogue of horrendous malpractices and deceptions.

Especially disheartening is the thought that the whole thing was funded, in part, by a law firm looking to sue vaccine manufacturers.

This is why we can’t have nice things; like a happy, well-adjusted society.  There will always be greedy motherfuckers ready and willing to prey on the fears of the layperson to sell snake oil and lawsuits.  There will always be people too malleable and proud to accept the fact that their problems don’t have a tangible source that they can go harass and kick in the doors of.

There will always be a Daily Mail.

  1. One of my blogging habits is to collate pro and con posts on a particular issue. One reason to do is that each blog has its own set of commenters and often the comments reveal aspects of the issue previously not considered elsewhere.

    Today’s issue is the UK’s General Medical Council’s ruling on Andrew Wakefield.

    I’ve included this post in the list.
