Minnesota Trivial Pursuit

If (as I once did) you ever find yourself playing this game, when you're asked what the governor did to deal with the horrible devestation caused by locusts in 1876 and 1877, the answer is: declare a statewide day of prayer. I guessed wrong, and later thought it was a funny answer that reminded me of how silly official life was in the olden days. Things haven't much changed.

Whatever happened to the plagues?

Are we just in a lull [bad weather aside]?

I suppose AIDS and the future avian flu pandemic are really bad. As an absolute number, there are probably more cases of malaria today than ever before. So many rich people in the world make it seem like things are better plague-wise.
