*Gasp* A Well Thought Out Article On Vaccines!
Alright, so it's on the Opinion Page of the Indianapolis Star. It's still a very well written article that describes the tactics of the anti-vax crown to a tee. And it summarizes the evidence for the safety of vaccines, uh, also to a tee.
There is also some troll leaving inane comments below the article, so we should counter him by leaving positive comments in support of Richard Feldman.
A drunkard's walk refers to the mathematical expression of successive steps, where each step can diffuse in any random direction. That pretty much sums up this blog. I'll write about nearly anything as long as it has to do with science, and I'm still waiting to see where this will end up.
I am a graduate fellow studying biology. I'm interested in science and culture, science policy, the public's attitude towards it, skepticism, empiricism, and logic. Still trying to work out what this blog will actually be about, but right now it's just random items that I find interesting, with a focus on translating scientific advances, explaining life as a scientist for the non-scientist, and promoting logical thinking.
