The Navigator

...unexpected consequences....has an ominous ring to it, doesn't it? Brings to mind Jurassic Park. Nobody listened to the lecture on chaos theory. And we all know how that turned out, don't we? Real life hasn't fared much better either. In fact, has anything we've intentionally introduced into the environment ever achieved the desired effect without any unexpected consequences? Hmm...Let's see. The gypsy moth in New England, nope. The mongoose in Hawaii, nope. Successful examples are hard to come by. Introducing genetically modified mosquitoes into the environment scares me.
