Dr. J,

That isn't a misquote; with the exception of the ellipsis, everything there is what you posted. I merely...uh... "edited" out the uninteresting parts. I think it reads much better that way!

Lyme disease, actually. had it at least once, possibly twice. we've all had it, thanks to the savage deer population of suburban Maryland.

Savage deer?

Dr. J,
Watch out for RMSF too! According to wikipedia, "Despite the availability of effective treatment and advances in medical care, approximately 3% to 5% of individuals who become ill with Rocky Mountain spotted fever still die from the infection."

I don't think we have much of it around here, though. We are in the center of Lyme disease country. giant, disease carrying rats, that's what the deer are.

edit: no offense, Splinter, in case you are reading this over d'name's shoulder.

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/rmsf/Q&A.htm#whereoccur

In the United States, where do most cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever occur?
Rocky Mountain spotted fever is a seasonal disease and occurs throughout the United States during the months of April through September. Over half of the cases occur in the south-Atlantic region of the United States (Delaware, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida). The highest incidence rates have been found in North Carolina and Oklahoma. Although this disease was first discovered and recognized in the Rocky Mountain area, relatively few cases are reported from that area today.

Ah! Another Marylander. Never won'lda known, Josephus. And about the deer population there; I hit a deer within a week of getting my license (not my fault, either -- it jumped out of the trees right in front of the car). My dad has hit a deer as well, and he's one of the better driver's I know. My sister's gotten Lyme disease - twice. Our pets constantly get deer ticks even when using Frontline.

It's horrible. (and they only allow bow hunting in my area not that I'm a hunter, but I'd like someone to be able to take care of the ever increasing deer population).

And it's not much better in PA (where I'm currently situated).

our golden retriever got it and died from kidney failure shortly after we moved here- cherry. I still miss her. Since then, our dogs were vaccinated for it when there was still a vaccine- I don't know if it' still available for dogs or not.
My wife hit a deer here a day after buying a brand new van. Had to get a whole new front end.
truly, the deer are a scourge upon the land.

Wow - I'm really sorry to hear that. But definitely - they're giant rats.

Not much better in Ohio. There was a disease not too long ago, bluetongue, that was killing a lot of them. Not enough.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

I think there's a severe disease called blue tongue virus that'll kick your ass if you're a cloven-hoofed creature, like a deer or goat or giraffe. or vicuna. or camel.
or satyr.

bubonic plague. and apparently in New York City, they're the size of buses (according to Dave Letterman, who is from Broad Ripple, after all).

The rats didn't have the plague. The ticks did.

I did see some very large rats near City Hall in the city once.

hety, now, you need to read things in context, and don't just jump to scurrilous conclusions. The original post said this, from a few seconds after I initially posted it, whereupon I edited it to this version (bolded):
