I've received several letters of concern about the meningitis outbreak
here in Mankato (must be a slow news day on CNN).

In the past 4 weeks, there have been about nine cases, mostly centered on
one of the high schools. Yesterday, another case was discovered here on
campus, and the MN Dept of Health decided to innoculate the whole damn
town (about 65,000 people).

No, i'm not dead. No the entire town isn't quarantined. No, this is
not shades of the upcoming movie _Outbreak_ or the miniseries _The Stand_
or even the classic _Andromeda Strain_. Just a few cases in a close cluster.

Now, stop sending me mail about it. We're fine :-)
