Well, I’m thinking happy is not the word I would be choosing. <g> It’s just 
that I’m reasonably sure at some point, something’s going to pop that won’t 
bode well for humanity as a whole. It wouldn’t even take fewer people being 
immune. After the initial meltdown, the loss of 25-40 percent of the world’s 
population might be viewed as the thing that saved us. While the Black Death 
was not viewed with much favor by those who endured it, the succession of 
plagues across Europe changed the social, economic and political landscape, 
improved the quality of life for the lower classes, and likely helped usher in 
the renaissance and the end of feudalism.
