    Guess what lots of local and state public health departments did with some of their federal BT money:

    They found ways to use it to enhance local all-hazards preparedness -- often with an emphasis on pandemic flu because that is one of the biggest and most inevitable hazards they envision.

    I have participated in many BT drills around the country in which numerous drill elements were explicitly designed to exercise natural disaster or outbreak response readiness, not "just" bio-terrorism.

      who have their heads screwed on straight!
