All over the neighborhood even this late, I can hear hammering. People are having their roofs fixed—a bumper crop of ice dams have [sic] led to this. It's 43 degrees F and finally a little low sun after a cloudy day…but still some snow on the ground. I should have gone out for a walk when the sun came out but I convinced myself I was tough enough to read John M. Barry's "The Great Influenza." I've taken stabs at it throughout the day and I keep putting it down. No problem reading about Marburg but influenza accounts make me queasy. I heard Barry giving a talk on MPR the other day and "[sic] thought ["]there's something I need to look into for future reference." Well not today. And it's not really in my line anyway. Not poison, not mayhem of the usual sort. Indiscriminate, uncontrolled. He writes that when influenza kills it kills through pneumonia. Evan Osnos in the 3.28.11 New Yorker has an article on the Japanese earthquake, tsunami, and reactor radiation problems. He writes very clearly about the devastation. He talks about an outbreak of influenza in Kamaishi threatening the survivors.
