Well now isn't that special!!!!
According to an article on Thescientist.com,

"The US government is taking steps to sell Plum Island Animal Disease Center, the government-run lab which has conducted experiments on pathogens such as foot and mouth disease."
Pathogens such as foot & mouth disease? You gotta be kidding me. That doesnt' even make a DENT in the "research" that was done there. There's evidence linking Plum Island to 3 major outbreaks of infectious diseases: Dutch duck plague in 1967, Lyme disease in 1975, & the West Nile fever outbreak in 1999.
Gosh, I feel safer already. They plan to move the lab to the middle of the country in Manhattan, KS right in the center of livestock territory.
How the heck are they gonna decontaminate all the buried garbage & God only knows what else?
Any takers on this bargain?
Another tidbit of choice information on the benefits of such a lovely island retreat.....
