The outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease at San Quentin State Prison in the last week sickened six inmates and sent dozens more to the medical ward. The disease, which can be transmitted through water, forced plumbing shutdowns at the penitentiary. Kenneth Brydon is one of the inmates who was treated for symptoms including diarrhea. He phoned KALW contributor Nancy Mullane to talk about how the disease has disrupted the prison.
