CFI and CSI's Lindsay Schwacks Homeopathy in the Washington Post

here, I briefly cite from a letter to the editor:

001. Ronald A. Lindsay, "president of the Center for Inquiry and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry" writes in "The Pseudoscience of Homeopathy" (2014-05-10):

"[your previously published article] 'Looking for Alternative Treatments? Look Here' [...] included a seriously misleading comparison between homeopathy and vaccines [...] homeopathy is a pseudoscience [...] developed long before modern scientific research [...] controlled studies have not shown that homeopathic drugs are more effective than a placebo.  The Post does a disservice to its readers by suggesting that homeopathy works pursuant to the same principles as vaccines." 

hear, hear.
