The Black Death

Just a quick additional post to let everyone know that mice infected with the bubonic plague are missing in New Jersey. If this were a serious problem, I wouldn't make light of it, but apparently the risk is minimal. You can get the plague from squirrels in the Rocky Mountains. Still, if you are in Jersey and you do suffer from black swelling and stinking bumps on your thighs, do go to a doctor or at least a priest. Who says knowledge of medieval history is not useful?
