In an unrelated story from the 12/20/02 New York Time's: There was a power failure at the high-security Plum Island Infectious Disease Lab, staffed partly by replacement workers in its 5-month strike...not just the main power but all three backup generators. There was a sabotage "incident" in August, and maybe another (600 pounds of liquid nitrogen on the floor, one of the replacement workers involved having an arrest record) and Senator Hillary Clinton wants to shut the place down pending safety review, but really there's nothing to worry about: Ms. Hayes [spokeswoman for the Agriculture Department] said workers at the center sealed the doors with duct tape.
