The ongoing discussions of thimerosol in vaccines are too extensive to try to capture here, but I do think it's worth an occasional glance to see how they're proceeding in non-law circles. So go check out Respectful Insolence's most recent post, which pulls together a bunch of posts related to a recent study that purports to establish a drop in autism since thimerosol has been removed from vaccines.
The discussion interests me also as an instance of just how quickly and thoroughly folks online get involved in critiquing developments. Whether or not that's all to the good, it's remarkable to watch.
