• Ticked off about the bailout? Luckily there’s Offsetthebailout.com, a social network for angst-filled consumers to post their anti-bailout rants.

• Continuing the presidential technology lovefest, the Obama campaign launches an iPhone application.

• Schwarzenegger cracks the whip on California’s urban—and gas-guzzling—sprawl.

• Jenny McCarthy for president? America’s favorite anti-vaxer hits the political scene.

• And in other anti-vax news, the Florida Institute of Technology publishes the first national survey of attitudes towards autism and vaccines—and it ain’t pretty.

• The BBC reveals its version of the Stanford Prison Experiment (hint: They got the same results).

• And where oh where can we turn for informed and accurate advice about the economy? MIT’s a pretty good start.

  1. We appreciate that you published information that was released last week concerning public awareness and knowledge of autism. Unfortunately, the information released indicated that at one time the MMR vaccine contained thimerosal. Once we realized the mistake, we corrected the information to read as follows:

    The public’s concern over vaccines stems from a controversial 1998 British study linking autism and the MMR vaccine. Other childhood vaccines at the time contained the mercury-based preservative thimerosal. The British study was later retracted by most of its authors and thimerosal was removed from nearly all childhood vaccines in 2001, but responses to the just-completed survey show the public is still confused.

    For additional information, you can go to the FDA website: http://www.fda.gov/cber/vaccine/thimerosal.htm
