The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Polio Not Going Away?

For John, BLUFSmall actions can have major impacts.

A friend sent along this article from The New York Times about the dangers involved in distributing oral vaccine against Polio.  The lede:

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — A volunteer in a polio vaccination campaign was killed and her colleague wounded in an attack by militants near Peshawar on Tuesday, a district administration official said.
My friend's comment:
The WHO and the CDC might as well forget about eradicating polio in the Muslim third world.  It appears that it's now impossible to combat ignorance of communicable diseases with a vaccination campaign, as was done in the past with smallpox eradication.  BTW, thank you, CIA.

See also this article from the NYT and this one from The Baltimore Sun.

If we don't eradicate Polio, will it eventual make a comeback in the Western World?  The activities far away can sometimes come back to impact us locally.
