Who wrote about mapping diseases?

I read a quote the other day, and now I can't find it. It was about mapping how different forms of disease spread. It wasn't here, where would I have seen it?

The quote was something like "If you want to know what a type of disease is ask an epidemiologist to map it. If it spreads along the highways, it's viral, if it spreads in a circle it's molecular." The quote has a few other examples of distribution defining the type of disease.

I read this two days ago, Google is no help (mostly due to poor user skills, no doubt.)

Anyone else see this?

You're thinking of the opening quote from this post, I believe.

Thank you, the bone that holds my brain up must be broken.
