it was amazing
bookshelves: history, science-pop
Read in April, 2009

You will never think of 'just flu' the same again. Dead carts (as in 'bring out your dead) roamed the streets of American cities in the early 20th century. In Philadelphia, 4597 (yea, four thousand five hindered ninety seven) people died in one week and bodies piled up in the streets to be carted off to mass graves. Got you flu shot yet?
