Can disease change the world?  A great question as we learn about the Black Death this week.  Why don’t you make this a writer’s boot camp topic?

“What was the Black Death? How did the Black Death spread so quickly? How did the Black Death affect people in the 14th century?

We’re told it was spread by fleas on rats and is now easily controlled with anti-biotics. Today though there are those who doubt the two diseases are the same and how ready we are to deal with this ancient disease if it surfaces again.
