Well, Rapp, do you think we shall do good business today?
Then you do not think, like some others, that we must retreat?
For people accustomed to think that plans of campaign and battles are made by generals--as any one of us sitting over a map in his study may imagine how he would have arranged things in this or that battle--the questions present themselves: Why did Kutuzov during the retreat not do this or that?
People accustomed to think in that way forget, or do not know, the inevitable conditions which always limit the activities of any commander in chief.

I think that is the case with polio and smallpox, which means they weren't eliminated because they were easy, but because they were awful.
When we think of decoding the genome, we typically think in terms of the human genome.
