    What is it with measles these days?

    Climate change?

      Idiots saying vaccinations are dangerous, and idiots not vaccinating their children. Idiot's free speech vs. reality.

    What did they think?
    That their Thetans would protect them from diseases?

      I find it interesting that ~700 cases in ~350,000,000 total population is worth calling an epidemic.
      No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

        It was down to 2 or three per year (mostly returning vacationers/ tourists/ immigrants) until a few years ago. Basically wiped out in North America.

      Yes, I'm aware of that and it's a shame; still, compared with the black death, spanish flu, smallpox or polio, it's a bit over the top.

        I'm sure if any of those had 700 cases reported this year, that there would be a similar response.
        (and the time to do something about it is before there are 7000 cases.)

          I thought the scientology cultist frauds said they knew secret magic to cure everyone's illnesses (if they paid the cult enough money)?

              Thanos could cause an instant decrease of half of all cases of measles
