One Man's BS Propaganda is Another Man's Fact, 3 May 2008
Author: mightyquinninwky from Morganfield, Kentucky

You have to realize what is motivating someone's comments, and anger can be one of the most blinding of motivators. If something unfortunate happens to a young one that have to blame the world and take out their short comings and mistakes on everyone else. The fact is vaccination has saved innumerable lives and all but eradicated dreaded diseases such as small pox and the German Measles. There will always be a small few that it hurts (then than 1%) and that is a small price to pay when you look at what toll these diseases took when they were allowed to run rampant. Today we have people that are irrationally blaming SIDS and autism on these vaccines, but truly no research (and there has been plenty) has found a link. People must quit being irrational and understand that there is a risk that comes with anything good and pardon the cliché "don't throw the baby out with the bath water". As far as this cartoon goes; great animation and excellent writing! All pros working on this and you can tell. No wonder it won the Oscar, a great piece of animation as is most of the stuff from Warner's during this time period. Don't take one angry persons word, watch it, check the science, then make your judgment. I can't believe they allowed his post to begin wit; anyway well worth the watch!!
