Quidnunc, whose name comes from the Latin “what now,” is out and about as often as possible to bring you news overheard in elevators, rest rooms and spied in various e-mail boxes.
QUID HAS HEARD that Colorado conspiracy cults may be weird but they’re not entirely insular. Seems that there’s a handful of Kool-Aid clubs in the metro area that sip from the anti-vaxxer variety of top-shelf blends of psuedo-science and scare tactics. Hacks at this oft-hated fish-wrapper sneaked into the inter-sanctum of Twitter feeds and Facebook groups to get a good sense of what makes them distrust a tried-and-true science that nearly obliterated measles and cures cancers we once didn’t even know existed. After months of snooping and a goodly basket of words spilled by this rag in defense of pocking kids with needles to keep them well, the chief hack here issued the newspaper columnist equivalent of a measles manifesto. In it, so-called Editor Dave Perry called out Gov. Jared Polis for standing behind vax sissies and insurgents, saying he opposed real mandatory vaccinations in Colorado. Perry’s rant outed the vaxxy cult’s social media machinations, especially the part about recommending docs who don’t make too big a deal out of not vaccinating the brood, or how to get around the issue altogether.
Perry’s blathering blaspheme now has vaccinoters trying to out their spies and list the dozens of ways they hate who was already probably the most hated hack in Colorado.
AND THAT’S ALL THE NEWS THAT FITS
