a measly 30 grand?

Just to illustrate my point about the false notion of scientific "fairness" whereby everybody's vote on a complex and nuanced topic counts equally, regardless of how blitheringly ill-informed they are, here's a heartwarming story about the aftermath of the MMR hysteria. I think an appropriate and proportional response would be the resignation and subsequent suicide of a prominent media hystericalist, let's say Melanie Phillips. Come on, Mel, you know it makes sense.

To cheer ourselves up after that, let's all apply for this job. Sounds like a thrusting young executive may be required, though the demands of the job may leave you shagged out by the end of the working week.
