These Americans eating horse wormer

"In a state with the nation's second lowest rate of
vaccination against the coronavirus, a jump in the number of
calls to poison control prompted an alert Friday from the
Mississippi State Department of Health about ingesting the
drug ivermectin. The department said that at least 70% of
recent calls to the state poison control center were related
to people who ingested a version of the drug that is
formulated to treat parasites in cows and horses."

Is this the stupidest thing that's ever happened, ever?

Carl Sagan nailed it years ago

“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or
grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a
service and information economy; when nearly all the key
manufacturing industries have slipped away to other
countries; when awesome technological powers are in the
hands of a very few, and no one representing the public
interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have
lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably
question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals
and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical
faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what
feels good and whats true, we slide, almost without
noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing
down of America is most evident in the slow decay of
substantive content in the enormously influential media, the
30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), the
lowest common denominator programming, credulous
presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but
especially a kind of celebration of ignorance."
