Apparently, the eradication of disease is a bad thing, according to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. It would be great to go back to the days of mass measles outbreaks, for example. But if one has the choice to vaccinate against measles, then why not extend that choice to all vaccines? Let the diseases return!
