More on Morgellons

57 News stories on Google News referencing 'morgellons'. One story says that the CDC is creating a task force, yet I could find no references on their site. This person points out the same concern but appears oddly bitter about the delusional bahavior of Morgellons sufferers.

My previous post on Morgellons on the 23rd pointed to an Adrants article that suggested it is viral marketing for A Scanner Darkly. A few comments have been added since then, and the Wikipedia entry has been updated with the recent flurry of local news reports, along with the claim that MLB relief pitcher Billy Koch and his family have Morgellons. That section was added on the 24th after a story about Koch and Morgellons was published by KTVU in San Francisco.
