Rethinking Insanity

The DHS decision to locate a lab for researching plant and animal pathogens in Kansas is encountering trouble -- at last! at last! Finally, the intelligence of locating such a facility in Tornado Alley -- and in the heart of US agricultural activity -- is being challenged. There will be a hearing to discuss dangers shortly.

I hope the new structure goes right back on Plum Island, where the inadvertent release of pathogens would go out to sea instead of over farm animal and crop populations.

I can't say I feel any more at peace allowing it to flow out to sea from Plum Island

Now I'm imaging the world being ravaged by giant mutant sea bass who owe their super powers to a modern-day Andromeda Strain.

While a tornado-prone area might not be the best location for such a lab, most locations will present some sort of hazard.

Is it OK if I don't provide a spam link? ;)

Cujo, only locations I can see as being reasonably safe are deep underground or in places such as the Arctic.
