WE’VE HAD TOP MEN WORKING ON THIS. TOP MEN. Forgotten vials of smallpox found in storage room. “A government scientist cleaning out an old storage room at a research center near Washington made a startling discovery last week — decades-old vials of smallpox packed away and forgotten in a cardboard box. . . . It was the second recent incident in which a government health agency appeared to have mishandled a highly dangerous germ. Last month, a laboratory safety lapse at the CDC in Atlanta led the agency to give scores of employees antibiotics as a precaution against anthrax.” May I suggest that our disease-fighting experts focus more on addressing this kind of stuff, and less on junk food and gun control?
