What is it this time? ... the flu again.

I am seriously sick of the flu. I am sure that people will die of it, just like they do every single year- just like they have forever. The fear that I hear is freaking me out. Don't people remember bird flu? Sars? Anthrax and mad cow disease? What about when a few people get food poisoning and they throw away a whole season's worth of perfectly good tomatoes... I could go on and on and on. So obvious to me that fear sells news. So the fear of the day is swine flu.

And I am not buying it one bit.

You watch- next week it will be another pretty suburban blue eyed missing girl for Nancy Grace to cry about for weeks while the inner city violence goes unchallenged and unreported.

When I watch the reaction to this flu, again- it seriously causes me to call the whole world stupid. I am thinking about looking into some flights to Mexico- I bet that there are some deals out there.
