Two years ago, I followed the “100 years ago” column with the comforting thought that we, with all our science knowledge, would never have to go through something like that again. And now, to quote a local author, “God said Ha!”
I think it would be interesting to create one of those full-page articles that you have been running on various topics that summarizes the timeline of what happened here in Spokane in 1918. Especially, repeat again what actions the then health director did to prevent the spread of the Spanish Flu to be worse than what actually happened.
You don’t have to make overly obvious the similarity between that guy and our current ex health guy.
