Sorry for Light Blogging

Have been busy and have had a cold. I swear, the modern office building, with its low-walled cubicles and poor air circulation, must be the twenty-first century public health equivalent of the medieval open sewer. The building I work in is an epidemiological death trap - a free and unhindered pathway for viruses to drift from one poor, suffering human host to another, wafted over the cube walls by every sneeze and cough. If another plague ever emerges from the forests, jungles, or deserts of the world, they'll be stacking our stiff, blue corpses like cordwood and hauling us off to mass graves in the backs of Humvees.

And they'll probably make us take it as vacation time.
