Dear Colleagues:
     The question has been raised that what "worst genetic nightmare" could we 
think about that would make a good novel. Is this irresponsible? Many genetic 
manipulations are do-able, some techniques are actually occurring that 
although benign, if used as a model for other systems would make this planet 
uninhabitable. I urge some care and some perspective on this.
     Take care...John
