Crop Dusters

It would be very bad if terrorists got their hands on Anthrax, a crop duster, and flew over a city or stadium (the U of M stadium holds over 100,000 fans) releasing their payload. Well guess what, U.S. law enforcement found manuals for crop dusting equipment while searching terrorist hideouts. It’s too bad Anthrax vaccines aren’t common place yet.

    I wonder how expensive this vaccine is? Would it be covered by insurance?

    It strikes me that if a crop duster flew over a stadium or some other heavily populated area, it would seem a bit out of place. Especially if it’s bay doors were open and stuff was coming out as it went over the people. But I suppose even if it was suspected, it would be hard to treat 100,000 people within 24 hours.

    Is that enough to make you want a vaccine? Hehe, although we don’t have to worry TOO much since we go to heavily populated events about.. uhh.. once a year maybe? Yeah, I don’t get out much.

    Uhm, no clue on the first part, heh. †Probably on the second part.

    But you are correct, it would be very hard to treat 100,000 people in such a short amount of time.

    We don’t have to worry much at all, but a lot of other people do.  They are living in fear as we speak.  Really sucks for them.
