I'm researching the Mexican Revolution for an upcoming cover story we're doing for True West and I came across the double whammy statistic of over 1 million deaths by violence in the 1910-1920 period, but then on top of that there is another 300,000 who died from the Spanish Flu.
Ay-Yi-Yi! Can't help but think of the current pandemic hysteria and how there is nothing new under the sun.
