My Comment on Swine Flu

Some of you may remember my writing about fnords a few years ago. The swine flu coverage is a good place to follow that – yes, it’s serious, and yes, it’s important to make sure that you take preventative measures. But as of the time I post this, no one has died from it in the US and most of the populations that have been affected are active in hog farming. I pray that everyone who gets it recovers – and while it’s serious, so far in the US it hasn’t been deadly. I also hopes that this results in the US giving some kind of health assistance to Mexico. They ARE our neighbors!
