FAO chief says world not doing enough to fight bird flu - Yahoo! News:
"OTTAWA (Reuters) - Fear of a bird flu pandemic among people has hampered efforts to prevent the spread of an outbreak among birds, and donor nations have dragged their heels on promises of millions of dollars in aid, the head of the United Nations food agency said on Monday."
This is always the way. I feel like I'm watching one of those Saturday afternoon matinees of a disaster movie where the government officials are always doing too little too late. Their like the mayor in Jaws. Business comes first, and if that's the wrong decision, chances are we won't be around by the final reel to regret it.
