From Kentucky Lexington-Herald:
"Residents in southeastern Kentucky who are opposed to the building of a bioterrorism laboratory there have collected 2,800 signatures on a petition.
Scientists at the gigantic research lab would study treatments for viruses and diseases that could be unleashed on America through the food supply.
Some Pulaski County residents said they worry about the potential for leaks from the 500,000-square-foot lab, or that it could become a target for terrorists.
"We are concerned about potential dangers and disruption of our quiet farming community," the petition says. "We feel it poses a genuine threat to the health and way of life of our community and surrounding counties."
Rep. Hal Rogers, a Somerset Republican, led the effort to put together a consortium of political and academic officials from Kentucky and Tennessee to try to win the project for Somerset.
At least two other states are vying for the proposed $451 million National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility and its 400-plus jobs."----------------------------------------
Another case of NIMBYism leading to the downfall of our country. We have to build defense labs somewhere people. Hey government, Idaho wants it! Whatever it is... Idaho wants it! Bring on the labs and the jobs and the hazy death cloud, we're into that kinda shit up here.
Screw you Pulaski residents, you are acting against your best interests. When Idaho has a sweet biodefense industry blossoming and first access to all the vaccines, you will be welting up in the streets - bleeding from most every orifice.
