Rinderpest begone!

Great feature in the New York Times today about the celebration in Rome of the eradication of rinderpest:

For only the second time in history, a disease has been wiped off the face of the earth.

I had a soft spot for rinderpest, or rather its eradication, and was proud to support FAO’s initiatives by buying their t-shirts (read previously):

Proud to be rinderpest free

I should dig it out again for the celebration!
