I read an essay, by somebody, called "Waves Forrest" years ago <only four pages long, but disturbing.> He, whomever he is, powerfully if inconclusively argues for a human/Nazi/recombinant-gene-crafting origin of this latter-day-plague.
Inasmuch as this is a new century, a new millenium--I thought I'd solicit your opinions
A> Who cares what it’s origins, Richard_from_Cal?
B> I believe! Short grey gene-splicers and dicers and Nazis in the intel community have cooked this up to kill gays and Blacks.
C> It fell to earth, like Ebola, Marburg, and others…HF51a(sp?), Spanish influenza of 1917…get a grip.
D> God’s design. Homosexuality is the plague. God is curing us.
E> Short Greys?? Nazis in the intel community???—You’ve
got some sort of disease, Richard_from_Cal, and it’s in the head!
