Woman caught anthrax from drums

Anthrax Found In Drums Linked To Infected Woman

US health officials have confirmed samples from a pair of African drums used in a drumming circle attended by a New Hampshire woman who is severely ill in hospital with gastrointestinal anthrax have tested positive for the deadly bacterium.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) confirmed on Monday that test samples from two African drums stored at a building belonging to the the United Campus Ministry to the University of New Hampshire in downtown Durham have come back positive for anthrax, but stressed they have not been confirmed as the source of the infection and additional tests are still going on.

Again, synthetic drum heads may not be such a bad idea.

If one thinks like Newt Gingrich, one can conclude that God hates drums.
