Im not sure you would say that if you were in Philly in the 1800s, or in NYC, in the 1850s, or indeed living anywhere in the US in 1915.

Cholera, Yellow Fever, Polio epidemics were taking out huge swathes of population then and even today the threat of AIDS and H1N1 Swine Flu have yet to reveal their full impact on society.

The way I see it, pogress isnt always pretty and perfect, it comes with hits and misses, but I'll take progress over whistling in the dark.
