    So you know what is really sad. When I read the title to that article my first thought was that it was going to be about violence against nurses by patients and families. Bioterror is a reality but most nurses are in much graver danger from beligerant and violent patients and family. We won't get into the fact that there is a killer plague coming. That is being discussed elsewhere.
