Michael Fumento thinks there is nothing to worry about. Revere disagrees:
It isn’t that what Fumento says is so outrageous one would have to be stupid or ignorant to believe it. It’s that it would be folly (and stupid) to act as if you believed it. Fumento couldn’t care less about public health nor does he care that what he writes makes it still more difficult to get government to make a puny investment in keeping us safe from disease at the same time he encourages it to sink more down the rat hole of the War in Iraq.
Fumento, of course, shows up in comments to insult not just Revere, but all of his readers:
No, but little things like that and my impeccable track record on disease hysteria dating back to “the heterosexual AIDS explosion,” SARS, Gulf War Syndrome (ask the IOM about that), and even pandemic avian flu back in 1997 (Yes, you read right) count for nothing. You’d like people to forget all that, while remembering “false facts” that you provide. Fortunately, most people aren’t as stupid as your readers.
