The crazy world we live in

by Ed

This is not a tip, it’s news, but I was so amazed I had to share it. I don’t know why I was amazed, everyone knows governments are more interested in power and money than the wellbeing of their citizens, but this one was a jaw dropper.

It seems the government of Indonesia has stopped sharing information about the nasty bird flu virus, H5N1, because they want to make money off of it. They have made a deal with an American pharmaceutical company, and they are claiming intellectual rights over any strain of the virus discovered in their country.

Here is the story on the BBC News site: Fears over Jakarta bird flu deal
