“We learned that lesson the hard way after Hurricane Katrina,”
“This nation must not be caught off-guard when faced with the prospect of an avian flu pandemic. The consequences are too high. … The question is will we be ready when that happens? Let’s make sure that answer is yes. I urge my colleagues in the Senate and the House to push this administration to take the action needed to prevent a catastrophe that we have not seen during our lifetimes.”

Teen Charged With Felony After Threatening ‘Mass Homicide’ If Zimmerman Acquitted
The Huffington Post – By Hunter Stuart
A teenager in a Chicago suburb was charged with a felony after threatening to commit “mass homicide” should George Zimmerman be acquitted of murder charges in the Trayvon Martin case, according to multiple reports.
The threat, which was made on the 15-year-old’s Twitter account on Friday (before a verdict had been reached), read, “If Zimmerman leaves free imma shoot everybody in Zion causing a mass homicide, and ill get away wit it just like Zimmerman.” The tweet appears to have been deleted.
