This vaccination thing (or how I’m planning to change the world.)

If you’ve been reading this you know that I started a “Cause” on Facebook last week called the Anti-Anti-Vaccine Campaign.  I had no idea what I was doing, but I’d seen Causes on Facebook, had a thought and acted on it. It’s been an interesting experience. I’ve dipped my toe into a highly charged pond and have gotten my first glimpse into how it works. It’s very early days but I’m starting to...

Comments I’ve gotten.

Comments I’ve gotten.

I get comments.  The other day I had a rush of blood to my head and started a cause on Facebook.  It was about discouraging anti-vaccination propaganda on Facebook.  No big deal, right?

I said that when I see anti-vaccination propaganda I tend to respond and challenge the post in hopes of getting the writer to stop posting that sort of propaganda.  I know I’m unlikely to change their opinion, but at least I may be able to decrease the antivax background noise, at least a little. Well, in yesterday’s...

Don’t suffer anti-vaccination propaganda gladly

My wife teaches yoga. I practice yoga. I make it clear that I’m a consumer of yoga and not a yogi. I don’t pay attention to the philosophy or spiritual side, but I like the fact that at 64 I can touch my toes and do a few other things that I might not otherwise be able to do. As the spouse of a member of the community I know lots of other teachers. Yesterday I saw a post on Facebook by a senior yoga teacher who I’ve known...
