    Has anyone kept up with this story on bird flu experiments in the Netherlands that made it more contagious to lab animals. The National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity wanted to keep some details out on how the experiments were conducted.

    I'm more worried on conducting the experiments in the first place.

    NPR's Morning Edition had a story on it this morning and a researcher echoed my opinion that oversight needs to happen at the research level and not at the publication stage, where it's too late.

    That's okay. Some old lady in Nebraska told me in a dream that I'm covered.
