Another gay man dies of Bacterial Meningitis as CBS reports suspected widespread unsanitary conditions in compounding pharmacies, which have caused outbreaks before

A West Hollywood gay lawyer/real estate broker, Brad Shaad, has succumbed to a fast-moving bacterial meningitis infection which some fear may reflect a spreading of a virulent, possibly sexually transmitted strain.
     Or maybe not.
     Yesterday, CBS reported that half a year after the New England Compounding Center spread meningitis through steroid products, authorities inspected 31 other compounding pharmacies in 18 states, and discovered that only one was free of "conditions that could cause a risk of contamination."
