An Inclusive Litany

Letter to the editor, the Boston Globe, October 31, 2001:
The Globe has proclaimed (Page A1, Oct 28) that the recent anthrax attacks are "the deadliest bioterrorist attack in US history," but let us remember that bioterrorism is not new to this soil. European settlers in pre-US North America are known to have intentionally used smallpox as a weapon to eliminate Native Americans from land that they coveted.
