Here is Hank Albarelli’s latest piece (this one co-authored by Zoe Martell) on the Army’s covert biological research–which, as most Americans don’t know, entailed human experimentation, often on unwitting US citizens. (Hank’s excellent book, A Terrible Mistake, is a must-read on this appalling chapter in our history.)

As Hank mentions Plum Island in this piece, it’s relevant to note that that mysterious locale is also in the news, because the government intends to move its research operations there to a new lab in Manhattan, Kansas. That AP piece does not quote any Kansans, most of whom presumably have no idea what’s coming. The people there should know about it, and weigh in.

You can read the AP piece–“Lab’s move begins to lift mystery around NY island”–at

Meanwhile, please read Hank and Zoe’s piece, and pass it on.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
