The Swine Flu

So all I’ve heard the last couple days is “Swine Flu!” “Swine Flu”. I’m kind of a skeptic. The reason being that just like computer virus’s, most highly publicized pandemics don’t really have the catastrophic results that are forecasted. Which, of course is a good thing, but personnaly, I’m not all that concerned about it. Maybe if/when there is a case in the pacific northwest, it will hit me a little harder. Who knows. The only thing that really worried me was the point my mother brought up this morning when we were talking about it this morning; typically when deaths occur from something like that, it is the very young and the elderly, whereas with the swine flu so far, the deaths have been in otherwise healthy, in their prime people. I guess I’ll just have to wait and watch….
