@duncan Sorry to bother you, but I need a second opinion. What do you make of the lab technician note copied on p202 saying that WB had found spirochetes, Wolbachia, an East side agent, Babesia and microfilaria in tick samples? This is at the end of a chapter dealing with events up to early 1980. At this time no spirochetes were supposed to have been found. If this is placed anachronistically and comes from Nov/Dec 1981 or later then the records are not supposed to be available. Either way something does not fit with the story. I am confused. It seems quite important.
