I remember reading this 15 years ago or so, was a pretty big bestseller at the time

 

 

1992 Book "The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus"

by Richard Preston (the only nondoctor to have received the Centers for Disease Control's Champion of Prevention Award)

 

The bestselling landmark account of the first emergence of the Ebola virus. A highly infectious, deadly virus from the central African rain forest suddenly appears in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. There is no cure. In a few days 90 percent of its victims are dead. A secret military SWAT team of soldiers and scientists is mobilized to stop the outbreak of this exotic "hot" virus. The Hot Zone tells this dramatic story, giving a hair-raising account of the appearance of rare and lethal viruses and their "crashes" into the human race. Shocking, frightening, and impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone proves that truth really is scarier than fiction.

    • Marcel Brooks named LSU and Bama as his final two, I believe. From a poster on Geaux24/7 known as DD3 24, re Brooks. https://247sports.com/college/lsu/Board/59425/Contents/Will-four-star-linebacker-Marcel-Brooks-sign-with-LSU-Tigers-or-Alabama-Crimson-Tide-115385904?Page=2 "Like I've been posting, and sent info to certain people on here to pass along, he can't read, and is failing, is a cancer on the team, always in high gear, whether it's fighting with coaches or players on the sideline, or getting personal fouls, or grabbing girls in school, posting instagram pics of him and his GF in shower etc. goes nuts on the sideline and needs a handler, which is usually a assistant coach, and sent to emergency room after a precaution to check for concussion, and they did blood work. Not only pot in his blood... hmmm..., no wondered he has all that energy and erratic behavior. Coach still allowed him to play after all this( failing as well). Maybe he's not now.. ??... other teams heard this, and was waiting to use the info, so they finally had to kick him off the team for the last part of the season. But hey...... he's better now! He's back on the team."
    • I've been optimistic on the Steele recruitment but if we don't get an OV then it ain't happening IMO.
    • Set up his 4th OV to Florida.  Committing on September 27th.  Fingers crossed we get his last OV.
