Just FYI, yesterday’s New York Times has a piece by Denise Grady and Gina Kolata on avian influenza: How Serious Is the Risk?
BTW, Tara, how did you rate Kolata’s flu book vs. Laurie Garrett’s treatment of the same topic in The Coming Plague? I enjoy Gina’s writing but I felt that Flu was more sensational in style than Garrett’s more scholarly treatment.
I agree. I liked the inside story behind the excavation and search for the Spanish flu virus, but there were a few cringe-worthy passages as far as the science went. I still would recommend, though.
Now we have self-promoting C&P robo-spammers speaking of themselves in the third person. Dude…at the very least look at your salutation. “Dear Sirs” indeed.
