#5 Five cases in 2 years - is that an increase, a decline, business as usual? Journalists seem to lack any sense of curiosity.

Note the word 'Possible' in the article headline. And this nice quote buried N paragraphs deep: "hard to say this is all due to climate change -- although it very well could be." A lot of stuff is possible but how likely is it?

#6 this disease is one that has been known for centuries even though it wasn't named until the 1950s

it typically occurs in 1 person per 200,000 which would mean in a normal years there would be dozens of cases in New Jersey.

it is also more common in people with diabetes or persons taking illegal drugs

#7 it is also more common in people with diabetes or persons taking illegal drugs

But hardly anyone in New Jersey takes illegal drugs!
