  • And in related news:
    Orange County, California health officials are reporting a “record breaking” outbreak of measles in which 21 people have been infected and seven have had to be hospitalized ... Over the past several months, several outbreaks of measles have been observed throughout the country in Boston, New York, Texas, Connecticut, Illinois, and in the California cities of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Francisco. The increasing number of outbreaks have been directly tied to more people choosing to forgo these preventative measures based on conspiracy theories that vaccines are linked to autism.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
