Junkfood Science: Better than a soap opera

Better than a soap opera

For those who’ve been following blogger, Kathleen Seidel’s case with the anti-vaccination lawyer who tried to intimidate her silence: As we last left things, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire had granted her motion to quash the subpoena against her. Magistrate Judge James R. Muirhead had ordered the attorney to give the court cause for why he should not be sanctioned. He filed his response this week and you won’t believe his comeback. It’s priceless.

It’s not fair and must be some big conspiracy network (with “co-conspirators”), he says (in essence), because she’s just a girrrrl. A "mother and housewife" can’t possible be smart enough to able to research the internet and medical journals, and write such well-researched pieces. She couldn’t just be a concerned mother of an autistic child, somebody had to be helping her, he says, and she must be “either an agent of the defendant or of industry.” Therefore, he wanted to find out who she was working for or with. Yes, she must be an industry shill. LOL! How many of us have heard that before?

Any lady who dares believe that she, too, is capable of doing science, just has to read Kathleen’s full account, titled “Welcome to my conspiracy.” Only she can do it justice. Too funny for words.
