A Great Name For a Disease
I was thinking about Robert Browning - yes I was! - and trying to recall which poem has a line about a "scrofulous French novel" in it. Then I was like, "What's scrofula, exactly? Better look it up!" So I did. Then I found out that scrofula used to be called "King's Evil." What a great name for a disease!
