Happy World Tuberculosis Day!

. . . I mean, um, okay then.

One of my favorite things about Wikipediais that the home page tells you what has happened on the given day in history as well as points out all sorts of good holidays.  I don’t know that World TB Day is really all that great a holiday considering the disease is associated with the death of over 1.5 million people annually and is found pretty much everywhere in the world.  Still I guess public awareness is important in fighting the disease.

Today is also the anniversary of the Exxon Valdez  oil spill in off the coast of Alaska.  This occurred in 1989 and is still the largest recorded oil spill to date.
