Hey Spores Fans- Annapolis Has An Anthrax Connection

And it's a big one--to the tune of tens of millions of dollars and it's right here in the newly opened Park Place on West Street no less! Pharmathene, a firm that describes itself as a "biodefense company developing and commercializing medical products to counter biological and chemical weapons" just received a contract from the federal government worth nearly $90 million. The company also owns a 160 acre facility near Montreal.

According to enews2.0, Pharmathene along with Emergent BioSolutions of Rockville have emerged as the leading rivals to develop defenses against Anthrax.

On a national scale, this news is clearly related to the goal of producing a national stockpile of Anthrax vaccine, while on the local level it is another example of the huge role that federal dollars, bio-tech and the growing national security-military-industrial-police state are combining to prop up our economy. I smell lots of high-paid jobs....but for some odd reason, their email address is not conspicuously posted on their web-site, nor is contact information for a press or corporate relations officer.
