Last week, I was lucky enough to find myself onstage at Johnny D's in Somerville (I think the last time I was there was for a Ben Harper concert in the mid-1990s -- but I digress) for a +The Story Collider  event. My story was about people ignoring science in the vaccine debate -- except this time, it's the pro-vaccine folks who aren't bothering to look for evidence.
