It's easy to blame Whitehead and his punches, but they were the direct result of Houdini's self-image and publicity...H's fascination with his physique...the whole "punch me" theme...were ongoing. So, in a way, the primary problem was one of Houdini's own making. Appendicitis is mentioned a lot, and his appendix was probably related to his death. He'd probably had previous problems with it, but it was exacerbated by the punches. We tend to forget that antibiotics had not yet been discovered. An appendectomy was a major thing, with significant risk of complications. Peritonitis was the secondary (and worse) infection. So, if you want a conspiracy theory...I'd suggest it wae those scheming bacteria. They're everywhere, in the air, on our skin, in our food, digging into every part of our lives. Mwahahahaha! [/quote]
