On this day 16 years ago: The only good thing to come out of the tragic and illegal war in Iraq was that the Gray Lady hired me to help edit the influx of copy coming from the Middle East

Most of the people who contracted mumps at Temple University aren't necessarily morons.

The last paragraph of the linked article says:

"Mumps vaccine has been part of routine childhood shots for decades, but research suggests that protection fades 10 or more years after the second dose."

I never knew that. I'll bet very few people do. So most of the infected would have no reason to believe they were at risk.

And as I recall, the anti-vax idiocy started long after most of today's college students were vaccination age. That suggests that instead of 74 morons, this is a case of the adult child of moronic parents infecting 73 innocent victims.
