The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Caution, Please
I guess we all remember how researchers recently recreated the 1918 Spanish Flu in a laboratory. Here are November 26 and 27 opinion pieces from the New York Daily News, one against such research, and one for it. As you might suspect, I am in favor of the former position. In fact, the con piece is very interesting, outlining instances in which experimental viruses have escaped in the past. Of course that’s my biggest fear, especially in this day and age when scientists are working with such potentially volatile genetic material.
