So I saw this article on Yahoo the other day (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100520/ap_on_re_us/us_plum_island_sale) and thought “This is just about the stupidest thing I have ever seen.” The government is planning to close down The Plum Island Animal disease Center…and move it to Kansas. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plum_Island_Animal_Disease_Center) Plum island is a 840 acre island located a mile and half off the eastern tip of Long Island’s north fork. At this laboratory they study animal diseases such as hoof and mouth disease, which is highly contagious to livestock.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoof_and_mouth) According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office “Other pathogens known to have been maintained at Plum Island could also cause illness and death in humans.”
