Barbara Loe Fisher owes me a new irony meter

As we mentioned earlier, Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the infectious disease promotion group NVIC, is suing a bunch of people for "defaming" her.

Today she posted a piece at Age of Autism entitled, "2010 Needs A Fearless Conversation About Vaccination." She is suing a nationally-known vaccine expert, the reporter who interviewed him, and the magazine which ran the story about vaccination.

So much for fearless conversation.

So she wants promoters of avoidable infectious disease to be fearless.

What's hard to understand? Obviously they can't be fearless if they keep getting slapped down by reality, can they?

Fearless? I do not think it means what she thinks it means.
