|1/12/2016 - Just as rapidly as it emerged, the "Disneyland measles outbreak" essentially vanished less than sixth months after it began, leaving no fatalities, but that didn't stop lawmakers (and their handlers) from using the episode as an excuse to try and implement forced vaccinations nationwide.

|3/4/2015 - The following announcement appeared on CNBC.com via Globe Newswire.
