Ridiculous parents don't vaccinate children

(I found this draft post from 2008 in my blogger account, and decided to go ahead and post it because of the recent measles outbreaks.)

I can barely contain my vitriol for parents who don't vaccinate their children despite all scientific evidence that vaccines save lives. I was frankly surprised when parents voluntarily discussed their choice to not vaccinate in a recent article in the New York Times outlining parents who don't vaccinate their children. Such stupid and selfish decisions should be met with derision.

Today we lost Spock.

Spock was a hero. Maybe to every scientist/engineer, but certainly to me. He represented logic and reason and rationality, in an increasingly irrational world.

A child of the 80s, I never really loved the original series, preferring the refined Picard to the gregarious Kirk. But I loved Spock the most of all characters. His appearance in Unification made me ecstatic, as well as seeing him in the new movies.

Quinto, you've big shoes to fill.
