SARS

As you will no doubt be aware, there is currently a scare on about something called 'SARS'. Whilst I'm amazed that none of the talking heads have tried to play on fears of a biological attack, I'm quite thankful for it. To my mind SARS doesn't seem virulent enough, for such an attack. However, with my wife in Kolkata at the moment, I wasn't happy to be reading about the fact that though SARS is not a problem, common pneumonia is. Ah well, last time she went they were having a few cases of plague.
