school pride

16 Dec

I have perhaps an unfortunate amount of UVA pride, most certainly encouraged by the role two alumni played in the unraveling of Sarah Palin’s image preceding the 2008 election:

Yesterday, Paul Offit gave one of our last lectures of Mod 2–a two-hour story of vaccines.  I have to smile every time I remember that I’m at the same institution as the guy who left Stephen Colbert speechless, not to mention my bioethics prof who made Michele Bachmann eat her words.

    I love that Colbert piece! Dr. Offit offers such great counter-anecdotes to the overblown and false message from anti-vaccine zealots.

    P.S. Is it snowing on your blog?
