West Nile Virus, An Alaskan's Persepctive

The Associated Press wire is carrying a story about a few folks that have had a tougher than others time with West Nile Virus, the mosquito borne bird disease that we fully expect to hit Alaska in the very near future (i.e. next few summers). The story is certainly worth a sympathetic read, and two quotes jump out at me: one makes me want to hurry up and contract it, the other leads me to believe WNV is ALREADY here in Alaska.
As a litle test for my loyal readers, the first one to send me an e-mail identifying the quote that makes me want to catch it, and the one that makes me figger it's already here wins a years free subscription to BOTH BARRELS!
