Four persons in California have died this year from the West Nile virus. Hundreds of thousands of Californian died this year from other causes. Why would anyone believe that a poison that kills mosquitos harms no other creatures? The bureaucrats in charge do not even make such a claim. They just say it is safe, relatively speaking, to large humans. It is part of the DUMBING DOWN of America. Few persons ask questions about government (or corporate) programs - certainly not in what's left of THE PRESS.
