You know, this whole issue is becoming boring and insignificant. It is the flu. The flu. It happens every year. But this frenzy by various agencies trying to get attention is beyond belief. I am becoming concerned about the sanity of many of the supposed health agencies in this country, that something like this is creating so much copy for the 24 hour news media who desperately need to create crises and disasters for their distribution.
I'm glad to not be someone who watches the news on television. I can't imagine the kind of exploitative crap the media has turned a simple flu bug into.
