    [RC] WNV in the news: from Slate - Maryanne Stroud Gabbani

    Slate is a service that goes through all sorts of newspapers and magazines
    for items of interest. Being a news freak, naturally I subscribe. So when I
    saw this today, I had to ask myself if this man is computer-literate, or
    literate, or just lazy. The answer to the question is available to anyone
    from the US government itself: from NAMRU and from CDC. Unless Israeli geese
    and/or tourists have taken up terrorism against the US, I think the answer
    is that people and things travel very easily these days. All that was needed
    was a few hungry mosquitos on an El Al flight. Jeeez.
    "The New York Times stuffs news that Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) wants
    authorities to investigate possible links between the West Nile Virus and
    biological terrorism. The paper quotes a radio interview that Leahy,
    chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, gave earlier this week, in which
    he questioned whether recent West Nile Virus flare-ups have been a
    coincidence. The NYT notes that a congressional committee investigated the
    subject two years ago but doesn't report the findings."
