We honestly think this was one of the best, most clever, most well written WPs ever. Most challenging but sometimes when they are just difficult to be difficult its a different thing.

Absolutely grand.

Yeah, I agree it was a good one, though painful as heck as I had THREE pink screens! Ouch! I'm the one in need of some sort of medicine.

Very innovative and provocative word puzzle concept.
I had two puzzles that dealt with gangrene. Yecccchhh.

Not easy but well written.

FOR THOSE WHO ONLY RECEIVED 5 ... Many thanks for the kind words.

Herod the Great – needed a pressurized oxygen chamber for fournier gangrene of his body - 70

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin (Moliere) – would have lived much longer if he had just gone for a chest x ray -65

Grigori Rasputin – might have survived with immersion hypothermia or antiseptic lavage -67

Harry Houdini – needed just a standard laparoscopy and a few broad spectrum antibiotics -70

Tennessee Williams – would have lived if someone had just administered the heimlich maneuver – 70

Alexander the Great – may have died of west nile virus or avian flu which still has no cure – 69

George Washington – possibly had streptococcal throat infection curable with erythromycin -69

Winston Churchill – needed an immediate computed tomography scan and antiplatelet medicine -71

Jack Daniel (Whiskey) – gangrene in his safe kicking foot could have been cured with penicillin -73

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – if stricken with rheumatic fever use antibiotics and corticosteroids -69

Churchill also was manic-depressive, I couldn't figure out how he would die of that. Shoulda googled.

And I was SURE the word would be Asian flu for Alexander the Great. duh.

Always thought malaria got Alex the G. Typhoid has been mentioned but accounts of the symptoms don't seem to fit. He was in pretty bad shape - summer in Babylon, which was a swamp, after trekking back from India across desert and mountain with a great sucking wound in his chest, plus being overwhelmed with grief for Hephaestion, dead of a fever the previous fall, and probably deep into alcoholism.

maybe I just like the poetic irony of the tiny mosquito bringing down the demigod.

Parable, in there somewhere.

Since I did the puzzle after midnight my brain went to sleep and I forgot to write and tell you how great the puzzle was. Hope I'm not too later. I really enjoy puzzles where you learn stuff, too. Thanks also for including all 10
Good one, Jim. I hope there are more to come.
