1.  September has an R in it (sure they are not confusing the do not eat oysters unless month has a R in it, although the "frozen north" probably has hard freezes in September and April... I grew up in Phx so we didn't

2.  How recent is recent?  in 1977, there were 2 HS students in Ash Fork AZ, out shooting rabbits, and got plague...and the warnings about plague & rabbits is still out there  (what works against fleas?) (Does cooking  destroy the plague organism?)

And how scary is it to think about it still being around, was it prevalent world wide or brought by the European settlers...
