DemFromCT, you are doing the usual superb job.

I am not usually into biology but I have noted with some concern the TB epidemic in Africa. Some think that it is not treatable with current drugs. My grandmom has pointed out to me where the old TB clinic in SC was in the past. She had relatives there for a while.

Dad and my 2nd brother are doctors but they aren't around much and deal with more "in your face right now" injuries, but mom who was a nurse in the service and as a civilian, says it was very bad and sometimes people went to the asylums and never came out. She says that the new TB could be like HIV.

My "big" brother is ok. Mom and I communicate with him 2 or 3 times a week, usually. I would do it more often, but his time is limited. He says he "needs 30 hour days, but makes up for it by not sleeping."


Hope your Marine friend is ok too.

PRI's radio news show The World is promoting a story on a couple communities (I think in the U.S.) that had no deaths during the 1918 global flu pandemic. I'm going to do my darnedest to hear it.

My father was born in 1909 and grew up in Brooklyn.

I remember him saying that each morning during the flu epidemic people would put out their dead on the porch for the wagons that would come by.



This is an excellent thread. Just found it -- great job. Look forward to the upcoming series.
