Definitely something is up with the fact that the cases in Louisiana are strictly coming out of Da Parish and not Orleans, St. Tammany, Jefferson, etc. Could it be Katrina related still?

Nagleria fowleri is something you don't want to catch. Goes into the nose through the olfactory bulb and along the olfactory nerve back into the brain. Scary stuff

St. Bernard has been doing a complete overhaul of their water system recently. I have to wonder if this had anything to do with the bug being able to get into the system.

Nagleria fowlerii will kill the hell out of you. I don't know why I took parasitology.
