»ἕως θανάτου ἀγώνισαι περὶ τñς ἀληθείας, καὶ Κύριος ὁ θεὸς πολεμήσει ὑπὲρ σοu.« • »Pro iustitia agonizare pro anima tua, et usque ad mortem certa pro iustitia: et Deus expugnabit pro te inimicos tuos.« (Sir. 4:28/33)
Riley, if what you say is true -- about the prolonged laxity and suppurating unpreparedness of the levees, as a federal and local policy -- well, it doesn't bode well for the bird flu's touchdown in the States. Is it really the most prudent thing to WAIT until it hits and THEN speed up vaccine stockpiling? I know there's longterm vision for this "ramp up," but, well, it's chilling to think a possible pandemic is our cattle prod. Then again, the cynical Luddite in me wants to see a lot of this media wash as just more "mass hypochondria". Fear makes news, but, lacking enough of it, news does a fine job of making fear.
