Pro-Vaccination Efforts May Be Scaring Wary Parents From Shots

Laroue Re:Solution - Face-saving way out (482 comments)

They also have a big messaging problem. When a person gets a polio vaccine the assumption is that they won't get polio. Yet every year these same people hear the newscasters saying that they should get a flu vaccine. The words don't mean the same thing to the public as they do to the researchers or the doctors. If they would clean up the language I suspect their success rates would improve.

2004 Election Weirdness Continues

Laroue Re:Before you ask, the 4000 votes don't change Ohi (2013 comments)

The provisional ballots don't get counted until 11 days after the election.

Bush is currently leading by 136,483 votes. There remain 155,428 votes. Statistically kerry lost. Personally I still want those 155K votes counted.
