Things have been crazy in the US this week, with the Swine Flu Pandemic starting up, getting everyone’s attention and fizzling out. The media helped create false hysteria and Vice President Joe Biden put his little piggies in his mouth again, going far beyond what health officials said, almost destroying the airline industry.
Airlines lost passengers, over 400 US schools were shut down and parents took their kids to work – can you think of anything worse than putting up with co-workers’ kids at the office? Jails went into lockdown, people went into panic mode and the whole of Mexico shut down for five days.
The CDC said 30% of the confirmed US cases of swine flu had recently traveled to Mexico.
Now the latest news from our health organizations is that the Swine Flu is less dangerous than the common flu.
To celebrate this good news, Bacon Freak in California has a new T-shirt, “I survived Swine Flu.”
$5.00 from each T-shirt sale goes to a charity you select at checkout. There are two charities – the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation and the Student Operated Press Scholarship fund. Neither charity endorses the t-shirt.
