Golden Globes Flu Shot Shtick: I Thought We Were NOT Supposed to Listen to Actors About Vaccines?

Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson: Vaccines and Autism Was Top Goverment Expert was Silenced?

SharylYesterday, Sharyl Attkisson aired a critically important piece of journalism that will go unnoticed or be buried by mainstream media.  Please join us in thanking her and her guests Robert Kennedy, Jr., Rolf Hazelhurst and Beth Clay.

You can read the full article excerpted below at  the Full Measure website.
Visit her YouTube channel for replays as well.

Today we investigate one of the biggest medical controversies of our time: vaccines. There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill. A special federal vaccine court has paid out billions for injuries from brain damage to death. But not for the form of brain injury we call autism. Now—we have remarkable new information: a respected pro-vaccine medical expert used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret.

Yates Hazlehurst was born February 11, 2000. Everything was normal, according to his medical records, until he suffered a severe reaction to vaccinations. Rolf Hazlehurst is Yates’ dad.

Rolf Hazlehurst: And at first, I didn't believe it. I did not think that, I did not believe that vaccines could cause autism. I didn't believe it.

But there's a hard reality for Yates. The trademark brain disease, pain and inability to communicate that’s common with severe autism.

In 2007, Yates’ father sued over his son’s injuries in the little known Federal Vaccine court. It was one of more than 5000 vaccine autism claims.

Congress created vaccine court in 1988, in consultation with the pharmaceutical industry. In the special court, vaccine makers don’t defend their products—the federal government does it for them, using lawyers from the Justice Department. Money for victims comes from us, not the pharmaceutical industry, through patient fees added onto every vaccine given.

Denise Vowell: Our hearings are all closed to the public. And that’s statutory.

In 2007, Yates’ case and nearly all the other vaccine autism claims lost. The decision was based largely on the expert opinion of this man, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, a world-renowned pediatric neurologist shown here at a lecture.

Dr. Zimmerman was the government’s top expert witness and had testified that vaccines didn’t cause autism. The debate was declared over.

But now Dr. Zimmerman has provided remarkable new information. He claims that during the vaccine hearings all those years ago, he privately told government lawyers that vaccines can, and did cause autism in some children. That turnabout from the government’s own chief medical expert stood to change everything about the vaccine-autism debate. If the public were to find out.

Hazlehurst: And he has come forward and explained how he told the United States government vaccines can cause autism in a certain subset of children and United States government, the Department of Justice suppressed his true opinions.

Hazlehurst discovered that later when Dr. Zimmerman evaluated Yates as a teenager. That’s when he partnered with vaccine safety advocate Robert F. Kennedy, Junior—who has a voice condition.

Kennedy: This was one of the most consequential frauds, arguably in human history.

Kennedy was instrumental in convincing Dr. Zimmerman to document his remarkable claim of the government covering up his true expert opinion on vaccines and autism.

Dr. Zimmerman declined our interview request and referred us to his sworn affidavit. It says: On June 15, 2007, he took aside the Department of Justice—or DOJ lawyers he worked for defending vaccines in vaccine court. He told them that he’d discovered “exceptions in which vaccinations could cause autism.” “I explained that in a subset of children, vaccine induced fever and immune stimulation did cause regressive brain disease with features of autism spectrum disorder.”

Kennedy: This panicked the two DOJ attorneys and they immediately fired Zimmerman. That was on a Friday and over the weekend they called Zimmerman and said his services would no longer be needed. They wanted to silence him. Read more here.

Sharyl Attkisson's site is back up and I noticed this great rebuttal to Peter Hotez:


Jeannette Bishop

Yesterday, this tweet by an NBC health writer:

Is NBC going to "cover" Sharyl Attkisson's coverage of the DOJ autism-omnibus fraud? (Probably not I suppose.)

The great & all powerful wonderful Peter Hotez has spoken- ignore that Zimmerman-Thompson behind the curtain !


This Hotez tirade nonsense isn't fit to use as toilet paper.

Hans Litten

The brilliant Seneff - fantastic interview - wonderful.


A must listen.


The world gets smaller and smaller.
I retreated back to home with my teenager. My home town bunch of educational staff bent over backwards for him.

And not just him because; I subbed some too. In one class, the county system had hired a woman in to watch over a second grader with autism. She said during recess, as she hovered over him; that she loved him with all of her heart and was for every more trying to get people to greet him and for him to make eye contact.

Today in the news; the next town over, the next county over we get the staff punching a child with autism.

They may ignore Hazelhurst, Zimmerman, all of us, but it is going to cost a dearly.


stef Christian

I want to personally thank the Hazelhurst family. As the mother of a vaccine injured son, as a woman who held down her own flesh and blood and sacrificed him at the temple of Scientism, and as a warrior who will never stop fighting the total Megalomania of health boards, MD's, Dorit, Paul Offit, Dick Pan and all the others who have raised Corporations over Citizens and placed Money over Humans and true exploration --- I will fight to the death in this battle against good and evil. Mr. & Mrs. Hazelhurst your son was not harmed in vain. We will and shall overcome this monster. I hope every single parent decides to speak up and way out on this matter. The time is RIGHT NOW. #vaccinescauseautism as we have been saying FOREVER.


I was forced to get the MMR and hepB series as an adult, was injured, still suffering 10 years later, and very angry. There is no way in hell that sh.. isn’t destroying our children’s immune system albeit immediately or a slow burn. Either way my biggest aurguement is taken away ones choice. I didn’t want the vaccines that ruined my life. For anyone who complains they are at risk from the unvaccinated I have a recommendation - go jack yourself up every year. I’m also mortified that I just read above that Bill Gates didn’t vaccinate his own children. OMG! But thanks for the info. Sheryl Attkisson you go girl!!

David Weiner

Very well said, Cynthia Cournoyer.

Cynthia Cournoyer

When you begin every debate with "vaccines save lives" except for a few and rare cases, you have already lost the debate, whether you think you gained favor with the other side or not. Everything you say following those words discredits you from the start. If you believe each individual is precious, then you inadvertently hand them the pro vaccine argument of the "greater good" and "collateral damage" and "epidemic return" on a silver platter. You are literally admitting that those few and rare cases are worth it for the greater good of saving lives!

Why do you lose? Because the pro vaccine debate includes the premise: we would be so much worse without vaccines.

So you start every statement with "vaccines have saved lives but....." This is how it usually goes:

Vaccines might cause autism in some people: we would be worse without vaccines, i.e. greater good.
Vaccines cause side effects in some people: we would be worse without vaccines, i.e. greater good.
Vaccines might act on the immune system in unintended ways: we would be worse without vaccines, i.e. greater good.
Vaccines should be optional: we would be worse without vaccines, i.e. greater good.
Vaccines have led to billions of dollars in compensation for death and damage: we would be worse without vaccines, i.e. greater good.

It makes no sense to argue with them on their own territory. Their territory is that they own the medical industry and they own the government recommendations and mandates. It sounds like you are on their side when you keep handing them the very reason ALL vaccines exist today and that is to keep "saving lives" in the only way they know how.


There is nothing wrong with working with people who don't 100% agree with you. Never sell out allies.

However, Laura is absolutely right that you can't defeat this monstrosity by moderation (especially as the moderate position is completely wrong).

Once a belief is heavily institutionalized - and there has never been a more institutionalized belief in history than vaccination - the belief continues for as long as the institution does. There is no middle ground. You can't ask the institution to be more circumspect because that is not how institutions work.

You destroy (or at least alter beyond recognition) the entire institution or you allow the belief to continue. They are your only two options.

Jeannette Bishop

Nice of Salon to link to this program while chewing out its broadcasters:

John Stone


No I don’t like it - it has the no provenance, no identifiable doctor, no tapes, the same author faked a story about Vladimir Putin pronouncing scorn for the Western vaccine programme. It could be being used to discredit alternative media because it is so obviously false. It would be better if Gates responded to some serious questions.

PS He could answer about whether he had is own children vaccinated but not based on this preposterous fabrication.


Laura is right. Lying is wrong and perpetuates myths, confusion and the predation of an unholy industry. No excuses.


Laura Is right.
Using the word rare; is a magic word indeed. Use the world "rare" means to every one hearing it that it means it is not going to affect, or involve them.

John is right too; every science paper, every speech given, every broadcast that involves vaccines seems unable to "NOT" give a brief disclaimer, as in well this is rare, but we wish to discuss the rare cases. All hoping to keep the "powerful medical machine" off their backs.

They think when they do this that they are all being reasonable. Not part of the tinfoil wearing hats. They do this because they don't really understand that these are real, monsters. That these monster have no logic, reason, kindness, or caring; it is all about rich pharma. Which Sharyl Attkisson did deal with heavily on at the end of her segment.

Some times it does seem so hopeless. If it has to end, and it does coming from the bottom of the populace it may all end in burning, rage, rage, rage. I don't think those in power understand what a real dangerous game they play.

I wish for long prison sentences. However; I already it that ain't going to happen. At best, the insanity stops from the top in a few years????

Hans Litten

I know you don't like this story JDS, but I see it as a challenge to Melinda & Bill.
Come here and deny it BillyBoy?


The physician who served as Bill Gates’ private doctor in Seattle in the 1990s says the Microsoft founder and vaccine proponent “refused to vaccinate his own children” when they were young.

7 Feb 2018 – “I don’t know if he had them vaccinated as adults, but I can tell you he point blank refused to vaccinate them as children,” the physician said at a behind closed doors medical symposium in Seattle, adding “They were gorgeous kids, really smart and vivacious, and he said they would be OK as it was, they didn’t need any shots.”

The comments caused a stir among physicians at the symposium with claims he was breaking doctor-patient confidentiality, according to reports. However as he was speaking to other physicians, he was not breaking the industry code of conduct.

Gates has three children with his wife Melinda – Jennifer, Rory and Phoebe – born between 1996 and 2002, and according to his former doctor, they are all unvaccinated and healthy.

The news that Bill Gates does not vaccinate his own children, despite being the world’s most active campaigner for mandatory vaccinations, should come as no surprise. Studies prove that the elite do not vaccinate their children. But at the same time they expect the masses to have their children vaccinated.

Hans Litten

JDS & Laura

RFK was one those behind the historic glyphosate ruling which was a day I wasn't sure we would ever see - let me just check Bayers shareprice to see if it was a dream or not !

High 143.43 on Apr 10, 2015
Low 60.75 (currently just under 66) on Dec 28, 2018

No it wasn't a dream ! Bayer-Monsatan is in big trouble.

And he seems to have been heavily involved with the failure by the HHS to do what they promised to make the 1986 ruling legally binding. Another legal challenge hopefully.

And he has collected an affidavit from Zimmerman. Another legal challenge hopefully (DOJ).

So yes I think RFK should run for President. You bet I do. His book was good too Themiserol.
I have no issues with the democrats other than they are behind sb277 (aka sb666) and similar in many other places. My preference would be the Italian style of dispatching the old parties altogether and bring in new ones to begin afresh. Italy looks pure genius to me right now. And the Yellow Vests in France, if they bring down "Macron_Sb277", god bless them, hope they go international. I might check Global Slow Kill shareprice now.

Have you seen the walls and the moat that surround Nancy Pelosi's ranch ?
Before anyone starts, the Mexican wall is no concern of mine, but I do know Hitlerary proposed it a decade before I ever heard Trump do so.
This is not about migrating people, or gender politics or walls , it is about the vaccination extermination policies (to my mind the biggest crime perpetrated in all history bar none.)

I will back anyone who brings home the bacon for us. When Trump goes, we have to find another.

Laura Hayes

John Stone and Pete,

Because researchers and scientists have prostituted themselves...

Because pharmaceutical executives and employees have prostituted themselves...

Because government regulators have prostituted themselves...

Because media executives have prostituted themselves...

Because journalists and reporters have prostituted themselves...

Because doctors and nurses have prostituted themselves...

Because health insurance companies have prostituted themselves...

Because legislators have prostituted themselves...

Because some advocates and activists, legitimate and some most likely otherwise, have prostituted themselves...

Parents, the public, and people of all ages have been told lies from day 1 about vaccines. The best hope and most effective means to make headway against the many decades of intensive brainwashing of the masses with regard to vaccines is to completely shatter the lies and fully expose the fraud and corruption, leaving no stone unturned.

People are all too willing to cling to their belief system, even when it gravely endangers them and their loved ones, and will do so if given even the smallest of excuses to maintain their status quo. The inclusion of false statements and/or omissions of the full truth will not put a stop to the success of the pervasive vaccine propaganda, nor will it turn the tide against it at the rate that is urgently needed. Lies and omissions of facts provide people the out, the rationalization they seek, to continue down the path of least resistance...which in the case of vaccines is one that leads to destruction...of the recipient, the family, the school system, the community, and our nation.

John Stone


I am not saying it is a comfortable price - they should not need to say anything but if they don't they will likely rapidly find that they can be dispensed with and they cannot present their evidence. Bearing in mind that we don't all have identical views anyway, would we be strategically stronger if we were driven further underground? I guess it is arguable, but Hans here, who is your greatest admirer (I am an admirer too though I do not share identical opinions) also says "RFKjnr for President"!

Mark Brown PA

I have been consistent, too many vaccines, what is causing what? My second job
was Pediatrics. My 1st job was with 3 Harvard Docs. My challenge to Orac-Dr Gorsky
is 3+yrs old. Fungal Theory is very strong. We need Hippocrates to run medicine
not pharma--we would get much better vaccine policy---HIPPO is 50% CHEAPER.
I say check at AUTOPSY--Was it Cancer or a Fungal Infection? The Asthma, a Fungal infection?
Fungus can infect anywhere in the body. USE EXPERTS WHO KNOW FUNGUS NOT PHARMA!
It's very possible that a vaccine could bee the tipping point, overloading the immune system.
I haven't taken a Prescription in 8+yrs--except AB 4 Teeth.

I came to KAUFMANN'S+Dr Simoncini+Dr Constantini's defense from day 1. Orac
was attacking Fungal Theory+Kaufmann+Simoncini. Medicine is all about facts, what's
working or not. Our poor Nurses are caught in the middle of all this fighting.
They give the needles. I hope and wish you all the best with your journeys. 💚
I hope to see some good progress with Autism soon.

One thing I will say on it Laura is the rate of Autism in South London is rumoured to be 1 in 10 now.
So if we were to win the Autism argument, then to my mind with numbers like that , vaccination is finished anyway.

The Seneff projection never goes away either 1 in 2 by 2032.
How could they ever justify any vaccination if autism is conceded to be a vaccination injury.
My estimate for Global Autism numbers is at least 100M
At least this is my current thinking.

All the people who have backed vaccination are fighting for their lives I would say.
If Autism is conceded what does poor old Paul Offit and his family do ?
Where do they go ? Where would he be safe ? Apart from prison in solitary confinement.



The vaccine paradigm is a house of cards, so if you can get your foot in the door on mainstream or in the thought process of an individual, you will soon be able to destroy trust of the whole system. It's about first of all encouraging the door to be opened enough to get your foot squeezed in there.

Paul Offit knows this, that's why he does his best to keep the door firmly closed, telling us that 10,000 vaccines in one go would be perfectly safe.

Cynthia Cournoyer

Jonathan Rose,
No mystery why politicians don’t believe vaccines are dangerous. What defies logic is that the average every day person believes that government is very capable of corruption yet when it comes to vaccines, that person believes that government is not capable of the slightest bit of corruption.

Laura Hayes

John Stone,

Does she?

I am beyond tired of hearing that. Everyone needs to take a stand for the truth and refuse to compromise with regard to telling the truth.

It is compromises, one after the other, that have landed us in this heinous predicament in the first place. We are not going to solve the problem by repeating it.

John Stone

Frankly, let’s face it she has to say it to stay on mainstream TV at all. We see the same rubric in many vaccine critical scientific papers, but it is the price of being published.


Vaccine cause brain injuries. They do say that.
People say well not all children have a problem with them.

There is this subset.

You know; maybe the big pharma is still controlling the conversation through making us argue with them about the cause of autism. A brain injury and eight years later the diagnosis of autism.
Does a brain injury from a vaccine always just cause autism? We know better don't we.

I don't know how to turn it around at this late date, but if vaccines cause brain injuries, that would cover a whole lot of weird mental health issues going on in this country.

And why in the heck is allergies, asthma, autoimmune diseases just given the brush off.

It was a good show. Yeah, the word "rare" puts a lot of people to sleep when they need to be so vigilant. I think it did me, but nothing we can do except keep pressing forward on this.

Laura Hayes

Jonathan Rose,

Sharyl also stated what is below, which is the statement to which I responded:

"There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill."

She cannot substantiate either claim, and more to the point, there is evidence that vaccines destroy and prematurely end many lives, and often injure and kill.

There is no reason to include that which is not true, and many reasons to state only that which is true.

Jonathan Rose

Regarding what Laura Hayes and others have said, you can totally reject vaccination if you like, but we will get nowhere politically if we only work with people who agree with that 100 percent. Neither Sharyl Attkisson nor I nor many others here at AoA believe that all vaccinations are always harmful to all individuals. What Attkisson does say (and here I entirely agree with her) is that some vaccines are harmful to some people -- and that government agencies and pharmaceutical companies have greatly and deliberately understated the risks. I therefore believe that vaccination must be voluntary, like any other medical procedure. So Laura, I'm not an antivaccinationist, but I'm fighting for your right to be an antivaccinationist.
And Cynthia, if you're asking why both liberals and conservative politicians overlook the gross corruption in the vaccine industry, Attkisson points out the answer: the industry is one of the biggest lobbies on Capitol Hill, and they dole out campaign contributions to both sides of the aisle.

elaine dow

When I heard the comment from my son's pediatrician stating we are saving lives with vaccines, my reply was this:" I don't know if you saved anyone's life, but I do know you poisoned my child." Another mercury exposure during childhood was the drainage tubes inserted into infected ears were bathed in thimerosal. The pediatricians thought that maybe it was leaching into the brain causing autism, but injecting them was perfectly safe. The ear drops for infected ears also contained mercury and many nasal sprays. Thankful to Full Measure and Robert Kennedy, Jr. This week, while up at the farm store, a young man read my bumper sticker Autism it is no mystery, it is mercury, and he asked me to explain this, since his friend has autism, I did and I told him to watch Full Measure and I will return to the farm store this week and hope to help him for his friend. The government has failed our children in the most horrendous way, with no conscience. There is hardly a child that is not affected in one way or another

Hans Litten

yes agreeing with both Laura Hayes & david weiner of course.

every vaccine harms - every time

Alberto Castro

Great info Thanks AoA, Thank you Sharyl. Thank you Dr. Zimmerman and a huge thank you to the entire Hazelhurst family

Cynthia Cournoyer

Funny how when the right wing is in control of government, the left wing screams, "Corruption!" and when the left wing is in control of the government the right wing screams, "Corruption!" At any given moment in time, half the country thinks the other half is corrupt.

But when it comes to the possible corruption in a government-controlled vaccine industry which contaminates all levers of government, "denial" is the word of the day. How in the world could this one aspect of government intervention be completely free of corruption? It defies logic. Yet few are willing to touch the subject, much less have an honest investigation into the dangers of vaccines.

Shelley Tzorfas

There is a certain "Subset of children" did get vaccine induced fever, immune stimulation and did get features of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have heard this before out of others who praise vaccines. I suppose this small subset of children who get Autism from vaccines includes the 1 in 28 boys in America that have Autism?

Jeannette Bishop

Painful, but 1:05-1:18 is a much needed example of the straightforward presentation much appreciated in Ms. Attkisson's reporting.

Jeannette Bishop

@Laura, FWIW, after wincing a couple of times with that opening, I did note it doesn't say something like "there's no disputing..."

David Weiner

Laura Hayes,

I had the same reaction to this statement:

"There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill."

We know that vaccine injury is far from rare.

And then I try to conceive of how they can save many lives. Well, let's see. We know that the smallpox vaccine did not do so. There is very good reason to believe that the polio vaccine did not do so. DTP (in Africa) increased overall mortality greatly. So I have to wonder where all of these saved lives are coming from. I am not holding out much hope of ever finding the source(s).

janice curtin

Thank all of you for this informative televised discussion on vaccines. I believe that subset of childen who are injured most are the ones who are already toxic, from bad chemical foods, events in their lives, those born to vaccinated mothers or mothers who worked with chemicals, or have/had mercury fillings or taken prescribed drugs.
The weakest children will be most injured by vaccines or by illnesses. Everyone who takes vaccines will be less healthy. Most people dont even know they are vaccine injured. Chemicals and metals injected into our bloodstreams do damage. Whenever I see a child with glasses I say, there's a vaccinated kid, that cannot absorb Vitamin A. Vaccines with metals prevent us from absorbing fat soluble vitamins well. Those are vitamins A, D, E, omega 3 and 6. There are so many better ways to protect against disease, with nutrient dense farm food, cod liver oil, clean air and sunshine. Check out www.westonaprice.org for how to find these things, as well as journal articles on vaccines.


Thank you!

Laura Hayes

Sharyl originally lost me at:

"There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill."

When I first read that, I exited out of the segment in disgust and protest. Curiosity later got the best of me and I decided to go back to listen to it in its entirety.

Why those trying to expose vaccine-induced autism, vaccine-related corruption, and the Vaccine Holocaust choose to begin their stories/articles/interviews with vaccine propaganda, which then undermines the rest of what they say/write, I do not understand. It is not helpful, productive, or honest, and it perpetuates the propaganda.

Exposing the sordid truth about vaccines cannot continue to include lies which work to protect that against which we are fighting.

Also, note how Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC looks left at the 5:43 mark, at the exact time when she is saying, "There's no link between autism and vaccines." You know what they say about looking left...

Jeannette Bishop

Thank you, Ms. Attkisson. Thoughtfully compiled and well-spoken!

Hans Litten

This truly is an amazing piece, yes its older news to me, but its the way its presented.
You can give this to a vaccine newbie and they can understand it and will believe it.
Is this the straw that will finally break the Pharma's back ?

Please circulate widely ! Farcebook Whatsapp - hit 'em where it hurts ! True_information
We will defeat these criminals . We are close - cant you feel it ?

Thank you Sharyl. Thank you Dr. Zimmerman

Jonathan Rose

As I've said earlier, Sharyl Attkisson is just about the only real journalist we have left. In a just society, this interview would win a Pulitzer Prize. I came away with the sense that this is a turning point, the end of the beginning of the autism epidemic.
What's most revealing is what the mainstream media has to say about the interview: so far, absolutely nothing. Total silence. They began their attacks on Katie Couric even before she broadcast her program on Gardasil, because they expected she would back down: she did, and they publicly crowed. But they know that Sharyl Attkisson won't do that. Any attacks on her would lead viewers to watch the video of her interview, and then they'd realize they'd been lied to. They would also realize that Trump (on the right) and RFK Jr. (on the left) are agreed on this issue, and that would be powerfully convincing for Americans of all political stripes. So the media and the government will probably lie low and hope this story will just go away. I don't think it will.

Angus Files

So easy for people of this stature to say nothing,many thanks.

Pharma For Prison


cia parker

Why would she say "rarely, they injure them"? Vaccines ALWAYS do at least some injury, and in over half, they cause obvious and, by definition, severe reactions like neurological (autism, seizures) and autoimmune disease. The question always has to be how desirable and valuable you believe the disease protection will be, if it occurs as it is supposed to.

Bob Moffitt

It has become painfully obvious that our "elected representatives" in Congress are NEVER going to risk losing the lucrative financial reward for providing "oversight protection" allowing the vaccine industry to continue UN-MONITORED AND UN-ACCOUNTABLE for the widespread and growing evidence that our most heavily vaccinated children are suffering life-long, life-threatening chronic autoimmune disorders that are far less common in all other LESS VACCINATED COUNTRIES .. as well as .. ALL PREVIOUS LESS VACCINATED GENERATIONS OF AMERICAN CHILDREN.

Our only hope remains in our JUSTICE SYSTEM .. where all 50 states have attorney generals who are responsible for providing children in their state .. guarantees the vaccines they are recommended and approved to receive are as safe and effective as the vaccine industry insists they are.




I recently talked to a relative who teaches a high school science class required for graduation in his state. He mentioned his kids with ADD and ADHD, the kid who "doesn't have epilepsy" but collapses on the floor during class, and the kid who makes strange arm movements. He attributed these new problems to the stress of trying to get into college (though not all of his students are planning to go to a four-year college--or college).

That made me think: Was the Great Depression stressful? How about knowing you'll be drafted during WWII? How about getting bad lottery numbers and being sent to Vietnam? Was that a bit stressful? Seemed like it.

Maybe the stress today is the toil of recycling the dozens of unsolicited college flyers even middling students get.


Thank you Sharyl. Thank you Dr. Zimmerman and a huge thank you to the entire Hazelhurst family. Are there any updates on the Hazelhurst trial?
