Howard Feldman writes that it is clear that in a world where we strive to be accepting of others, vaccine choice is becoming more and more relevant. "One could argue that if a person can choose not get vaccinated then doctors should have the choice to not treat." 

Now that it's all over I can share the story of someone who was very angry with me. So angry was he, that he took the time to write a very long email with a very impressive number of words.

And an even more impressive number of legal references that I did not check for accuracy. The email was not addressed to me, but rather to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA (BCCSA) and to the radio station, who apparently needed to take me task and give me a very serious talking to.
