So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Color Me Shocked ... NOT

Looks like the schools are going to re-open on Thursday. Seems like the Swine Flu wasn't as bad as everyone feared. I'm shocked. NOT.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius:
"As CDC’s daily press briefings have illustrated, much has been learned quickly about the virus’s severity and its spread. We have learned that in many communities, the virus is widely circulating. When influenza becomes common in a community, it is unlikely that actions such as closing schools or daycare facilities are effective when it comes to slowing or stopping the spread of influenza viruses. Instead, such measures bring significant cost—such as interrupting student learning—without a significant public health benefit. In addition, we have learned that the disease currently being caused by this novel flu virus appears to be similar with that typically caused by seasonal influenza. Although many people may get sick, the available data do not indicate we are facing an unusually severe influenza virus."

Wow. Didn't I say something like that?

    Of course the Spanish Flu pandemic wasn't terribly virulent when it broke out the first time, it had to mutate and reemerge before it started killing everybody. Just a little tidbit to brighten your day :o)
