I posted Prof. Fenner’s passing on my Facebook news feed, mentioning his role in the wiping out of Smallpox. I also added that “He also killed a lot of rabbits”, provocatively because I have a couple of friends who like rabbits. One of them wrote back, “I wish I was there to strangle the murderer.”
