Mother’s Against DrivingOn the radio the other day, a microbiologist was talking about whyantibiotics are often ineffective against anthrax once the body isinfected. Apparently, the number of anthrax bacteria in the bodydoubles every twenty-five minutes once a person is infected. As such,even though antibiotics are killing off some of the bacteria, the sheernumber of bacteria prevent their complete eradication before the bodydies. At the moment, I’m fighting a cold. Of course, the first words outof everyone’s mouth are, “Are you sure it isn’t anthrax?” Yes, I’msure it’s not anthrax for several reasons. First, it’s a cold withclassic cold symptoms, not flu symptoms. Two, I’m not even a marginal-valuemedia or political target.
