Re: "Consumption" is tuberculosis

Allan,
sorry about your mother. Mine used to work in sanatoria, saving up for college. Many people don't know what the term means any more. That you put it in quotation marks indicated that you found something unusual about the term, and so my response. It looks like you have made some rapid progress on this puzzle!
