While Rome burns . . .

Of course, the wingnuts don't believe in the fire even as it scorches their own asses. BMJ today reminds us that antibiotics will stop working for us unless we stop feeding them to livestock. The Brits actually have pretty good policies about this but it doesn't matter because lots of other countries don't and antibiotic resistant pathogens cross international borders as freely as the wind. We might want to do something about this before our kids start dying of staph infections. We might.

Of course, that might actually be merciful if we don't urgently start to deal with climate change. But you know, it's a hoax. Thanks, I feel better now.
