Case of bubonic plague confirmed in L.A.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A woman is in stable condition with bubonic plague, the first confirmed human case in Los Angeles County since 1984, health officials said Tuesday.

The woman, who was not identified, was admitted to a hospital April 13 with a fever, swollen lymph nodes and other symptoms. A blood test confirmed the bacterial disease, and she was given antibiotics, officials said.


Not so. Los Angeles County has many thousands of women with boobonic plague - more of them than any other county in America, since Los Angeles is the center of the entertainment industry and women with implants in L.A. are a dime a dozen.

When bionic boobs migrate or spring a leak, they can stimulate the auto-immune system, causing chronic inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis and more rarely, in some women, life-threatening conditions, such as lupus.
