Ding Dong the Autism Doc is....not dead, but let's say defrocked. Not a legal term, but the religious, moral, ethical undertones do justice to the atrocious escapades and subsequent come-uppance of the former Doctor Andrew Wakefield so well.
Let's review, take a look at our protoganist over there...
There it is, the broad-faced boyish charm. Remember, a real-looker at the medical convention.
Yes, Brad Pitt and Brendan Frasier with a stethoscope and greased palm.
I bet Brendan is free, but this story deserves A-list treatment. A year ago Mr. Pitt was a long shot, but if US Magazine can be trusted, Mr. Pitt's looking a little bit more like the rest of us, even without the billy-goat beard. And what's the last movie we saw him in anyhow? Brad, this could be your own Russell Crowe Insider Moment. Think about it.
Fingers crossed, until the big screen debut bide your time with this witty graphic depiction of the saga. Pee first, really. http://tallguywrites.livejournal.com/148012.html
Dangerous diapers? It's a case of social networking gone amok - spawning rumors that the new Pampers Dry Max cause chemical burns.
Read all about it from Trevor Butterworth, a guy I adore, an editor over at STATS.com and now a columnist at Forbes.com ! Yes, Forbes - an entity many of us do not automatically equate with sage parenting news. Only Butterworth could liken the current online parenting rumors and rampant susceptibility to false information to the aftermath of the 1938 radio broadcast of the War of the Worlds. Bravo, Mr. Butterworth! http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/25/war-of-the-worlds-marketing-opinions-columnists-trevor-butterworth.html
Read the dreadful story of the toddler choking on popcorn in the New York Times Science section this week. Makes me want to cut everything into tiny pieces. Who knew carrots, apples and sunflower seeds were among the worst choking hazzards? Scary but will warning labels on these foods make any difference? Reduce child choking deaths? And just where will this info fit on the tiny produce stickers? http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/25/health/25choke.html
