    The latest plague epidemic is in Madagascar and it's reported to be the worst in 50 years. To make things worse, the people practice the dance of the dead this time of year where they exhume loved ones (dig up the corpses from their graves) and dance with them before re-burying them.

    I'm not sure how we can eradicate diseases when people lack the education to understand and prevent diseases.

    You have a point there. They are not doing us any favors.
