really liked it
Read in March, 2009

This is a fascinating look at the development of the Polio vaccine. I'm just starting as I write this, but I'm drawn in big-time. I remember eating the polio sugar cubes when I was litle. They used to really stress that we need to eat it. I remember eating it out of little paper cups like sacrament cups. Delivery has sure changed since those days. I'm amazed at the rumors and fears that existed around the development of the vaccine. Columnists accused the Eisenhower administration of secretly building and storing children's size coffins to bury children who took the Salk vaccine. amazing. Sounds like our day only with different things.
