WI. Dept of Public Instruction In Spotlight

Yah, sometime in the next 12 months or so, Wisconsin's DPI and its wonzo-Lefty Superintendent, Ms. Burmeister, will get to make a very interesting decision:

The national Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will decide June 29 whether to endorse routine vaccination with Gardasil. That endorsement is critical if a vaccine is to become a standard of care.

It then will be up to individual states to decide
whether to add the vaccine to the list of others required before students may attend public schools.

The controversy arises because the vaccine is recommended for girls ages 9-26.

Yup. 9-year-olds.

Gardasil, manufactured by Merck & Co. Inc., protects against the two types of HPV responsible for about 70 percent of cervical cancer cases. The vaccine also blocks infection by two other strains responsible for 90 percent of genital wart cases.

Any aspirin (or cold tablet), held tightly between the knees, will have even better effects.

Spellcheck AND coffee...

Ah, well, I have my ways.

When the young Beau drops over to pick up the daughter, I'm usually engaged in cleaning my 9mm.

I'll casually ask whether the young fellow wears Class III bodyarmor--or whether he can run faster than 975 feet/second, before I tell him that my daughter is like the Mona Lisa.

Look. Do NOT Touch.
