Joel Stein Vaccination Column & Neil Patrck Harris Profile

Two interesting short pieces from the Sept 28 issue of Time Magazine... both written by Joel Stein.

The first is "Neil Patrick Harris: Emmy Host with the Most" and written about the former "Doogie Howser, M.D." star who has since developed a solid career as an adult actor. Just an interesting piece about a guy who seems very comfortable in his own skin.

The second is Stein's last page column titled "To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate." It's a funny piece subtitled "My wife thinks I want to inject our infant son with cancer-causing toxins. So that's going well."

There's a good chance that the essay appealed to me because his approach of getting all vaccinations, but on a delayed basis, is exactly what we've done with our son. Ahhh... validation, sweet validation.
