The whole hubub about anthrax is much ado about nothing. It's virtually impossible to transmit from person to person (that is, it's not very
contagious or "hot".)
A few distant relatives had anthrax in my family; they worked at a leather plant and came in contact with thousands of hides per day. Everyone
survived. It's rather over-hyped if you ask me and doesn't pose an immenant threat to "security," or anything else. It's generally treatable if
caught, and the usual suspects are susceptible to it: elderly, young children, et al.
Vaccination of the populace is misguided and seems more like a hyped-up diversion.
