This week my guests and I will looking at current events.

ISIS are thugs but generally run a sophisticated PR operation. That went to shit with the captured jordanian pilot. I doubt they made many friends by releasing the video.
Ebola is out, Measels are in. There is a very active discussion on the subject of vaccinations. I seem to recal that kids get stuck with a needle 20 times by the age of two. That sounds ridiculous to me, but if thats what is needed, fine.
As far as I can see the whole problem started with a paper written a long time ago by Dr Alan Wakefield that linked vacinations to an increase in autism.It was completely debunked, but continues to get used.
