"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Vaccine May Cause Neurological Disorder

The Associated Press reports:
The government is investigating five reports of teenagers who came down with a serious neurological disorder after receiving a new vaccine against meningitis. Doctors don't yet know whether the cases of Guillain Barre syndrome are related to the shot, called Menactra, or are coincidence, the Food and Drug Administration emphasized Friday. The government recommends the vaccine for adolescents and college freshmen living in dormitories, and FDA said there was no reason to change that advice, but it alerted the public as a precaution.
Speaking of the FDA, guess who's in charge... Another Bush crony. Ah, what a comforting thought. And even more alarming, he is a "vocal supporter of faster drug approvals." Gee, do you think more testing could have prevented the above?
