Flu Vaccine, Deus Ex, Grey Death

Filed under: — Bravus @ 10:20 am

Anyone played Deus Ex? In the game, the issue is a plague for which the vaccine is in very short supply. Only the government and those with connections can get any. Of course the current flu vaccine panic in the US is not the same, but I’ve already seen the editorial cartoons asking how the country would cope with a bioweapon attack if it’s in this much trouble just vaccinating the population against the flu. Congress got some, and apparently so (for some odd reason) did prisoners in Maine and Missouri, and students at Louisiana State University. Not a conspiracy theory, just one more sign of palsy in the great Invisible Hand that directs the market to produce the greatest good for the greatest number.
