I brought this book along to read on the subway. Already it doesn't seem so funny anymore. I got off at Broadway-Lafayette around 10am and walked down towards the lab. It's in a little building that you wouldn't think held a biotech lab. There isn't even a sign for SBGx on the door. As I got close to the building, two cars screeched up in front. Bill and two other people came running out of the building. I was so shocked to see him in that situation that at first I didn't even call out to him. The men coming out of the cars had guns, Then there were more men coming out of the building, also with guns. There was a firefight. I ducked behind a food truck but kept watching because Bill was right there...

  • Local response is compromised or fails due to loss of personnel and/or facilities.
  • Aid to the region is not possible because all neighboring areas are affected.
  • Everyday community functions are totally interrupted.
  • Destruction of local and regional infrastructure means national government must take charge-if it is still intact and able to do so.
