    Of course this also ignores the fact that average life expectancy at birth has gone up because we've managed to eliminate or control most of the diseases that used to kill children.

    Now, if the anti-vaxxers have their way, maybe we can reverse that, too.

      breaking news about the vaccine scare fraud. I thought I'd heard about it months ago here, but maybe it wasn't sexy enough back then.

      Daniels is my guv for a little bit yet (moving) so I hang my head in shame. OTOH, this will make him look really stupid on the campaign trail, particularly for people who think the earth is 6000 y.o. I'm sure they're pretty sure science can't do that stuff--or shouldn't. Shop dKos!

        "Daniels is my guv for a little bit yet (moving) so I hang my head in shame."
        I felt the same way about Indiana when I lived there back in the late '70s. Then I moved to Ohio and discovered a place with even more screwed up politicians. (And it got worse after I moved out of Ohio. Can you say John Boehner? I knew you could.)
