earthThe latest virus fear is Zika, which could shrink the heads of newborns if their expectant mothers are exposed to it. Apparently the virus has been confined to tropical areas in the Third World, and so researchers in the rich world have devoted few resources to preventing or curing it. Now, however, with the threat looming, they are kicking their research into overdrive–and perhaps too late.

If the West were more good and less self-focused, perhaps we would have been doing the hard work of fighting Zika all along, out of love for our global neighbors. Truly, the wages of sin, even the sin of not caring for others, is death.
