Chupacabra Report

-more news that gets my goat. The AP reports on a study published in the Journal of the AMA showing whooping cough more extant now that 48 states allow parents to exempt their children from immunizations for personal or religious reasons. This highly contagious disease, which can be fatal to infants has grown from 1,020 cases in 1976 to over 25,000 in 2004. Faith based epidemics ahead? This reminds me of how polio has made a comeback in Africa because some Mullahs believe that the vaccine is a Jewish plot to spread sterility through the Moslem world. Lord knows what our homegrown wackos are thinking. From John Broder of the NYT comes a story about Americans for Honesty on Issues, a 527 group making a million dollar media buy attacking Democratic congressional candidates in the last weeks before the November election. The donors are anonymous, and the groups address is a mailbox service at an Alexandria Virginia UPS store, even their website is anonymous, the administrator Domains by Proxy, Inc. The group is headed by Sue Walden, a maximum donor to the Bush and DeLay campaigns and former lobbyist for Enron. This may explain what these people have against daylight.
