I was watching TV the other night when a news story came on about squirrels in Denver showing up positive for the Bubonic plague.
Bubonic plague? Ashes, ashes, we all fall down. Isn’t that also known as the Black Death, and didn’t it almost wipe out Europe?
What’s worse is this quote from the article:
“Every year, about 18 people in the United States die from the plague, according to the federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention.”
Huh? Who knew?
