California West Nile Season Begins 

Considering how much rain California got this year, there are likely to be (literally) tons of mosquitoes. That can only help make this season a nasty one in terms of West Nile virus. Today, the state got its first human case of the year.

A 47-year-old Tulare County man is the first human case of West Nile virus infection in California this year, the state Department of Health Services announced Wednesday.

The man sought medical care for fever and headache earlier this month and is recovering, the agency said.

Mental note: Add the following to my to-do-list:

1.) Buy deet.

2.) Get Industrial Strength Bug Zapper.

Number two showed up in the papers today, someone from Banning, in Riverside County
