Anthrax kills 2 drum makers

Anyone see Hill Street Blues?

Sgt. Phil (Freemason) Esterhaus

His 'roll call' was usually the start of each episode.

His catch phrase was "Let's be careful out there."

Violin makers 'roll call':

People let's be *safe* out there.

Hide glue is made from animal skins and glue stocks are listed as one of the concerns with respect to anthrax contamination. I have wondered about this in the past if glue could be a carrier of anthrax or does the processing eliminate this possibility? There is no way of knowing if the hide glue one is using came from an anthrax free country or not.

It's an interesting point. From the press reports I've heard here in the UK this unfortunate incident happened when the guy was striping hair from skins. Anthrax spores on the hair became air borne and he breathed them in. There does not seem to be a public safety concern re skins he might have actually sold fitted to drums. Perhaps our concerns should extend to bow hair more given this.

I've not heard of anyone running into trouble from glue, but it certainly should be treated with caution. Mad cow disease might be an issue as it's prion agents are very resilent.....plenty of mad violin makers around including me......Working with animal glue I seriously think it is wise to observe basic hygene and treat it like meat for cooking (ie chicken). Wash hands and surfaces after contact and clean the glue pot after use....never let it fester because bacteria that like animal glue like animals and probably humans too.
