The Palm Beach Post has the facts on a TB outbreak in Florida. CDC wrote a report on it in April. But what passes for a state government in Florida still hadn’t heard of it this month. Meanwhile, they shut down the TB hospital to save money.
During the great potato blight, more than one Irish coroner’s jury sitting on the case of a man who had starved to death brought in a verdict of “Wilful murder by Lord John Russell” (the English PM who made sure Irish grain kept being exported throughout the famine). By the same token, these deaths are wilful murders by Rick Scott, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Rupert Murdoch, and the Tea Party. They’d rather have TB (not personally, of course) than “socialism.”
