    We hear from time to tiem about an employee at a resturant who is sick
and everyone who has eaten at that resturant during a certin time period
should see their doctor, or contact the health department to be checked
out.  Generally the resturant is responsable for the bills.
    If we have an issue like this we could have a situation where someone's
medical insurance pays for treatment and then sues the SCA to recover their
cost.  The SCA member might have no option but to cooperate with the suit or
pay the bills themselves.  Because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it
