Nightmare bacteria

Antibiotics…the more you use, the more you lose…

The recent Southwest Minnesota State University theater production of "The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Project" presented that recurrent theme of societal ignorance and/or lack of preparation for events, often resulting in tragic outcomes. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, a dangerous, unsafe "sweat shop-type" environment, became the site of the death of 146 immigrant women and men in 1911 in New York City. Just a decade before, the supposedly "fireproof" Chicago Iroquois Theatre caught fire only a month after opening and caused the deaths of more than 600 people, mainly women and children, trapped in the new but unsafe building where stairs were blocked and unmarked exit doors opened inward. A year after the Triangle fire, the supposed "unsinkable" RMS Titanic sank with the loss of 1,500 lives, again in a situation of unperceived and ill-prepared risk.
