Since I have Pestilence in my Rolodex, I contacted him for a reaction. This is what he had to say.
I’m sorry to hear that, but it doesn’t surprise me. The job just keeps getting harder. People don’t understand the disruptive impact of technology has on our workflow. I, for example, worked really hard on the Ebola outbreak, and they managed to reduce it to nothing in a couple of months. There have been many times where I was close to turning in the white horse. Let’s face it, if it wasn’t for drugs I would be out of business.
I enjoyed working with Famine. I think we worked well together, but at times like this you have to look for opportunity, and, let’s be honest, when North Korea is your bright spot maybe the game has passed you by.
