Gotta agree with you on all the current foot'n'mouth hysteria over in England. John tells me that he can remember at least two other foot'n'mouth outbreaks in his lifetime, but there was never (as far as he can recall) this amount of slaughter in the past.
By the way, has your brother-in-law ever told you about Plum Island and what kind of research they're *really* doing over there? I ask, because Plum Island has been in the news recently, as being the only depository of the foot'n'mouth virus in North America, for "agricultural" research purposes. But of course, those of us who grew up on Long Island during the Cold War have another idea as to what kind of research has really been going on over on Plum Island all these years...
And then there's The Montauk Project, too... Our own Long Island X-File. :)
