The Knights Of Science

If this is propaganda, it's well done.

Authorities in Pakistan's Swat Valley have resumed vaccinating children for polio, a practice the Taliban had banned as un-Islamic before they were beaten back by an army offensive.

I have to admit there's part of me could back a modern crusade to spread science and medicine around the world, even at the point of a gun. Complex issue.

The drug companies would go for it. Then we could move to Pakistan for the real cost of meds, and have the U.S. pay for it too.

I'm in such a good mood today.

Sounds like you've lost that old frontier spirit. Westward ho the wagons and all that.
