    Before Sitting Down, Ask Your Seatmate, “Do You Have TB?”

    Unfortunately, some folks broke this golden rule on Northwest Flt 51 from Frankfurt to Detroit on March 10 – and now, the government’s after them!

    Well, government in the form of the Centers for Disease Control – because one of the passengers on the flight had tuberculosis – TB.

    The CDC is looking for 17 people seated near the Typhoid Mary (Tuberculosis Tom?). And why, you may ask, is the CDC (literally) making a federal case of this? Cuz these 17 are at risk of infection – though the CDC says, that risk is “low”.

    Well, that’s perfectly clear!

    But if I was on that plane, I think I’d give them a call. And try to remember my seat number.
