...because it sure seems that way.
Sneezes at Rouses, coughs on the streetcar, hoarse voices in the halls. I can hear A&E editor Will Coviello sneezing it up in his office. Listings editor Alex Woodward just got to the place where he's sorta over-something, but not quite.
I've been washing my hands compulsively, taking vitamins, and Purell-ing whenever I think of it...and despite all the precautions I just sneezed a time or two myself.
Do we as New Orleanians not put in our time with nine months of sinusitis and pollen-mold cough? Is that not enough sacrifice for the health gods? What foul new crud infests our city this first week of November? And is everyone around you sick, too?
