measles

Making a strong case forcomeback story of the year” is none other than measles. Who could have guessed? Turns out, probably a lot of us.

What’s our collective level of concern here? It doesn’t seem nearly high enough to me. The spread of the virus parallels the spread of junk science and bad information, and it’s a problem that appears to be getting worse, not better. The silver lining here is that there now isn’t a need to rely on information and science alone — the results of fewer vaccinations are plainly evident. That “herd immunity” thing you keep hearing about is real, as it turns out.

The Tin Man may have his objections (he’s made of tin after all), but the rest of us probably need to go ahead and take our medicine.
