Well, I certainly don't want it to be locals either. But what can ya do?
I would really love for it to be home-grown, because the most likely foreign supplier, Saddam Hussein, has the facilities to make weaponized anthrax by the ton, and it may be here by the ton. This stuff is worse than nuclear fallout -- much worse. When I read that the 9/11 hijackers were researching "wind patterns," it gives me the willies. We could be talking about something continental in scale. Certainly, it would be in character for the sociopath who booby-trapped all the oil wells in Kuwait to plot a grand finale on those lines. Better hope it's just some kook in a log cabin, eh?
