| I just saw Mo's post about the new movie "Outbreak."
I have seen only

|research that we lab rats are embarked upon. Certainly we will see
|multiple interviews and spin off news specials. I just hope that the
|movie going public realizes that the only way to solve such problems is
|to make research a priorty again.

I also saw it as a TV ad. programme of half an hour. I could only
know a part of the movie, but my impression is 'Could't Holywood make
OUTBREAK without much actions ?' I think it is enough and more
effective to reproduce the Hot Zone in the movie. Even if they needed
the plot in which a whole town and a country were in the fear of being
'crashed', they had a good example of 'La peste' by Camus. I hope the
movie would not be just a panic movie.
