Boston University just secured $128 million in federal funding to build a lab, in the over- crowded, urban, South End of Boston, that will study infectious disease.
University officials said the lab will be safe and will provide needed research into contagious illnesses and the risk they might pose in the hands of bioterrorists.

Yeah, right. If you read the article, you'll see that three of the University's lab workers were infected with some weird disease in 2004, so I don't really know how safe their labs are for professionals, much less the local population who, if they're anything like other Americans, are having a hard time with health care right now.
I try to be forward- thinking, really, but, I find it extremely difficult to trust my so-called government when it comes to the safety of Americans. How can I take them seriously about bio-terrorism when they're setting time-bombs like this?
