There's been some cases of measles in Seattle, and the people with measles were out in public quite a lot so a health alert has been issues, particularly to people who have not been immunized. Thought some posting here might need the news.

“What do you think science is? There's nothing magical about science. It is simply a systematic way for carefully and thoroughly observing nature and using consistent logic to evaluate results. Which part of that exactly do you disagree with? Do you disagree with being thorough? Using careful observation? Being systematic? Or using consistent logic?” ~ Steven Novella
