My wife and I have been talking and writing about this for at least a year. It’s bad enough that diseased crows may kill us, now we have to worry about clumsy scientists:

Scientists have made from scratch the Spanish flu virus that killed as many as 50 million people in 1918, the first time an infectious agent behind a historic pandemic has ever been reconstructed.

Why did they do it? Researchers say it may help them better understand – and develop defenses against – the threat of a future worldwide epidemic from bird flu.

Eureka! I’ve *crash*…Oh, crap.

Would it concern you to know that research with this virus is being conducted at less than maximum biosafety protocols?
