Sucks to be you, Vancouver Olympics
Canada has confirmed a case of leprosy aboard an Olympic security cruise ship.*
Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, is curable and is not considered highly contagious, said provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall.
Colour me reassured.
* Whatever an Olympic security cruise ship might be when it is at home.

Actually, it was a rather good idea which should have applied to the athletes' village as well. Park a few cruise ships at 100K a day in English Bay and you have "housing" for however many people you need to have at the Games. Vancouver could have pulled this off but, instead, they spent a billion building "condos"....sigh.
