Meryl Dorey Done, Andrew Wakefield a Douche

The news today has been good. Meryl Dorey, the former head of the strangely misnamed Australian Vaccination Network, has announced that she's stepping down and that this might be the end of the organization (with any luck). Hopefully this destructive religious-type cult will die a quick death.

In other news, The Lancet reported that Andrew Wakefield's 1998 study linking the MMR vaccine to autism was being fully retracted and that Wakefield himself was, "irresponsible and dishonest". A bit late coming, but hey, at least it's being reported by actual news stations as I heard this morning on my local channel.

A short lag in the shit-storm that is "alt.med" coverage in the media. We (the rational skeptical community and the general public) get a brief win to revel in until the next...well, let's be honest, until about three days from now.
