Not yet -- but Indiana's got a touch of the measles and it looks like Superbowl crowds may have played a part.
...That's how it has worked since time immemorial: get a big enough crowd together and they will share more than loaves, fishes and opinions. Modern sanitation helps but even if visitors and workers had been hosed down with Lysol,* the venue would have been a prime spot to share colds and more.
State Health Commissioner Dr. Greg Larkin is on the case.
As a small child, I thought the disease began with becoming very vocal and, as it progressed, one's eyes might turn blue and cross (especially the boys). Eventually, hands, feet, ears, nose and chin would turn a lovely sable.... Turns out that was "'Mesels" and it doesn't even exist. Drat!
* Not very far up on lists of "fun things to do." YMMV, but I'd as soon not know about it.
