WSJ OpinionJournal: WHO Cried Wolf

Fred D. writes “Interesting op-ed from the Wall Street Journal’s OpinionJournal. The May 1 entry of “John Fund’s Political Diary” is titled “WHO Cried Wolf”. Mr. Fund acknowledges the danger from SARS, but believes that more damages is being done in North America by SARS-induced panic.

Mr. Fund also mentions the upcoming ALA convention in Toronto, and says “[l]et’s hope that American librarians, who pride themselves on being information professionals, make the right decision and keep their convention in Toronto.”
