Did the Covid come from a Wuhan laboratory? Either way, the mystique of the technology must be questioned

Perhaps the greatest one-page science fiction ever written is Fredric Brown’s “Answer”. It takes place in the future where humanity has tamed nature, conquered galaxies, and connects a giant supercomputer that will hold all knowledge in databases across galaxies, linked by a sort of interplanetary internet. When he’s finally plugged …
