Funny that NoVaLug would reference ebola, since one major strain is
named after Reston, Virginia, where an outbreak occurred some 17 or
so years ago.
I'd say that's a mixed bag. Ebola is regarded as a bioweapon of great
power. Saving it might mean using it ourselves say, when the Martians
Or, somebody steals it and uses it against us. Still waitiing to see
who did that antrax attack against us several years ago.
Saving it might also mean that a later generation might have the tech
to create an antidote against it, but wouldn't be able to do so without
samples. Of course, current samples can prolly be found in Africa
fairly often anyway.
Bottom line - ah ain't got me no clue if saving ebola is good or bad.
