Report: Playboy mansion visitors acquire respiratory infection, for a change

Those of us who've been around the block in Hollywood a few times know to associate the Playboy Mansion with sleaze 'n' disease, but legionellosis is a new one. 170 mansion visitors are said to have acquired an illness that may be caused by this bacterium, according to this Los Angeles Times article. It's a "milder form of Legionnaires' disease caused by a bacterium that grows in warm water and can take root in hot tubs or parts of air-conditioning systems, according to the CDC." / UPDATE: health investigators say that people who became sick visited several locations, and the Playboy Mansion may or may not have been the culprit.
