DALLAS - Dallas County's top official has declared a public health emergency, saying the spread of the West Nile virus has become epidemic. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced the declaration in a statement issued Thursday night. Jenkins says county officials are doing all they can to fight the spread of the virus but need the public to do their part. Dallas County health officials have reported 162 West Nile virus cases and nine West Nile deaths so far this year. Mosquitoes pick up the virus from birds they bite and then spread it to people.

Oh sorry, you were talking about Eastern Equine Encephalitis .
Is Sarah your wife?
We had a couple of kids like you in school too, we didn’t see them much after school though.
You didn’t see me because I was out riding my 1964 Bridgestone BR80.
You keep insulting the parents of the time, and the parents of the people on this thread, you can be a prissy pansy all you want, you seem to have been born that way, but you shouldn’t keep mistakenly insulting our dead parents.
That is the strangest way for you to personalize something that you know nothing about, in freeper’s normal childhoods of 50 and 60 years ago.
The horses eastern encephalitis , the human cases are west nile ,, here’s a link on the cases http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/8a8243d2537d46a282b3b2b8560ea674/LA—West-Nile-Louisiana
Many now-dead parents of the time smoked themselves to death and other activities which were clearly indicative of a missing common sense gene.
And that's when citizens were considered and asset, instead of suspect, heavy luggage and a burden to bear.
Interesting, it is the same pathogen. Maybe I knew that previously and forgot it. The newspaper articles here typically use one description or the other depending on the victim but not so often both in the same article (my excuse).
LOL, no wonder you were in the dark as to what the other kids were doing during your childhood. Now I understand your first post to me, I though it seemed odd, and off.
I hope you live a clean, safe life, and take very good care of yourself, something tells me that you have never deviated from that.
It is true: I was never influenced by peer pressure. Am immune to it. God-given ability to think on my own. Zero tendency to follow current fads and foolish proclivities.
What a strange post about yourself, it doesn’t fit anywhere on this thread.
Well, thanks for sharing anyway I suppose, I hope we don’t learn a lot more about your personal inner life and challenges.
I look at her damn book as the beginning of the environmental wacko movement.
The MSM beat the drum like crazy on it at the time.
Their first and most deadly success worldwide.
You’ve pretty much admitted to us by implication you’ve been through a lot of embarrassing experiences that would best be left unsaid.
Just reread your post #35 about jumping out of second floor windows of structures under constuction and riding dirt bikes on the street (still do).
Interesting that you see yourself and your parents in a different light than the rest of us.
Rachael Carson done took it away. She also killed 30 million Africans in the process of doing so. She should be on the same list as Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mao.
LOL, no, I haven’t, but again you show yourself scarred by your childhood for thinking so.
Look, we know more about you than we want to, you seem angry at everyone for having played with the fog trucks in their youth while you didn’t even know they were doing it, that stung you, and you have been lashing out since, we also learned that you wouldn’t have played with the trucks even if you had known, we also learned that if you had been the kind of boy to try such a thing, that your mother would have forbade you.
How about just enjoying that you learned something about the 50s and 60s, and skipping all the baggage and condemnation, and anger.
I suppose I can see your point but there is a line between doing something exciting and doing something truly dangerous or stupid. No broken bones in the family yet although I am growing concerned for my mom who is 96 and has taken a few falls lately. I am convinced her guardian angel has swooped in and prevented an injury at the last moment.
I believe that number of dead Africans is closer to 100 million.
A person I used to work with in the pest control industry told me that DDT was still being manufactured in Venezuela. If true, how ironic is it that the best, most effective pesticide for mosquitoes ever invented is free to be used in Hugo Chavez’s socialist state, but not in the United States!
