Good map.  Plague being endemic was commented on yesterday, but a visual 
representation is always nice.

While bubonic plague is more common than pnuemonic plague in the US, both 
are survivable if properly diagnosed and treated early on.  What is truly 
fortunate is bubonic is less easily transmitted than pnuemonic, so we are 
less likely to have an epidemic overtaxing resources and raising the 
mortality rate.
