#1 I figure that UGA would be a target since it has a large animal lab there, but wouldn't the CDC in Atlanta be another target too be concerned about?

#2 Why isn't Midway Island on the list of potential sites? Isn't a few hundred miles of salt water good insulation of risk? Or are these risks transmitted by airborne currents?

#3 In the middle of the desert in Nevada or Utah would be good.

#4 Why go all the way to New York when muslims can get all the polio they want in Pakistan?

#5 al-Qaeda doesn't realize it, but this woman crossed over into "license to kill" territory. While she personally is getting a lifetime membership to Florence, Colorado, anyone she came into contact with has a death penalty on them.

There is absolutely, positively no sense of humor about messing with bio.

#7 Plum Island - virtually unknown, except to those who read Nelson Demille's books

see: "Plum Island"

but copy the link and visit via Fred's link to Amazon, then he gets a share...

#8 I've got a pretty good book on Plum Island around here somewhere (probably in a box packed up for my move next week), but I was under the impression that the lab was shut down.

#9 Lab 257 is the title of the book I have. Very fine, factual account if seeming a little sensationalized.
