Another Good Quote

Pseudoscience makes me crazy, whether it's so-called creation scientists using the fossil record to argue against evolution, or the anti-vaccine luddites who think that pyramids and skin peels can remove dangerous "toxins" that cause disease. Hence, I kind of enjoy this quote, from Tom Scocca writing at

"I am all in favor of forcible vaccination; anti-vaccine activists are degenerate idiots who deserve to get polio and live out their days in iron lungs while Child Protective Services takes away their children to be properly raised. Or tetanus. Get lockjaw and shut up and die. What's the point of living in 21st-century America if not to avoid dying of stupid, easily preventable disease?"

"...a cattle rustler in the Wild West in the late 19th century, he is known for being made into a pair of shoes after his death."
