The mysteries of rabies

Maggie Koerth-Baker has an interesting entry on Boing Boing this morning about rabies:

On average, 55,000 people worldwide die from rabies every year, but only two or three of those cases happen in the United States, thanks to widespread vaccination of domestic animals and availability of post-bite treatment for humans. Today, when Americans die of rabies, it's usually because they didn't realize they'd been bitten until it was too late - which is to say, when they first noticed symptoms.
