A DC Vaccine Court (special courts set up just to handle these cases - long story) ruled that vaccines don't cause Autsim. Of course, these cases were brought by people differently-intelligenced enough to think Autism was caused by vaccines - the medical community and its research notwithstanding. Now the government, in the form of a panel of sinewy, obscure "special masters," has conspired to strike down and suppress their claims. I'm sure, now that they've had their day in court, they're gonna let this issue lie -- and spread the good word to their like-minded friends.
[Ahem - got some bile stuck in my throat. ]
