“WHO CARES ABOUT WEST NILE VIRUS?” Asks Rachel Lucas. Yeah, it’s not exactly the Black Death. Though I wonder if it’s not more widespread than people think. There’s a “bug” going around here that involves a week of headaches followed by a couple of weeks feeling generally worn out and crappy. (I’ve had it; I’m on week 3). If it were West Nile, would anyone know? (And I haven’t seen a crow in weeks. There were lots last year.) Probably nothing, but as I reach for the Tylenol, it’s crossed my mind.
