The NYPD is staffed with gifted readers. Having obtained the LES DIY’s list of members who had recovered from bird flu, they managed to tip RAISE to conscript them all in less than 48 hours. These guys should probably be running RAISE (whose food distribution system broke down in Boston for reasons that are classified).
Or is RAISE already running them?
Anna intends to comply. She’s to report in the morning for a test that will show whether or not she has antibodies to H5N1. It’s fair to worry that the lab screens won’t be reliable. Our society is in shambles. What’s one more flu victim as long as the garbage gets picked up? What was a volunteer worth when they wanted to get Ground Zero cleared fast?
The good news is that we’re getting used to the telephoned death threats from people who mask their numbers. Anna recognizes a persistent Philadelphia accent.
