“Mary Mallon was not a revolutionary. But she was part of a revolution. She wasn’t that different from hundreds of thousands of other women who’d been cut loose from one oppressive system to make her way in an another. She was unluckier than most - in that she was identified as carrying typhoid. But like many of her peers, she was a fighter, a scrounger, a hustler, and a hater. She wanted her piece of the American Dream and was all too willing to work for it. They just wouldn’t let her,” p. 64.

Last weekend I traveled to world famous Daytona Beach which is about 45 minutes from where I live to do some hunting at the flea market there and found a guy with about 14 long boxes of comics selling them for 2 bucks each. Picked up Daredevil 238 from 1986, Sabretooth appearance and Mutant Massacre tie in with a Art Adams cover. 252 from 1987, Fall of the Mutants tie in. 255 and 256, 2nd and 3rd appearance of Typhoid Mary. 270 from 1989, 1st appearance of Blackheart, son of Mephisto. 323 maybe 1st venomized cover ever? Avengers 227 from 1982, early appearance of Monica Rambaeu. Marvel Two in One 64 from 1980, 2nd copy of this book recently. 1st appearance of Serpent Squad and possibly 1st appearance of Sidewinder, Anaconda, Death Adder and Black Mamba, at least that's what it looks like when searching those characters on @keycollectorcomics app. All books nm or better 😎
Medical Microbiology learned about “Typhoid Mary” and how important hand washing is to prevent disease transmission. Plate on the left was our control (no handwashing), plate #1 on top right (only used water), plate #2 on right (regular hand soap), plate #3 on right (antibiotic soap), plate #4 bottom right (hand sanitizer). We swabbed multiple areas of the hand but the ones shown are of the palms. We grew our swab samples on beets and observed them over a 5 day period. #medicalmicrobiology#epidemiology#typhoidmary#whichwashwins#washyourhands
