Masterpiece of Understatement

More from my visit in Salt Lake City. It seems public officials in Mormon land do not like to indulge in hyperbole. In an item on the news last night a bat was found on a school yard and several kids had been playing with it. It was found on Friday to have tested positive for rabies. A Salt Lake City health official was giving an interview.

"The thing about rabies," he said, "is that it's virtually 100% fatal. So if one contracts the disease things are not going to go well."

Um. One really cannot contest that statement.
