Here we go- another couple of weeks of flooded emergency rooms for anyone who has a cough or ate pork that tasted a little funny a week before. Way to get the ball rolling on the hysteria train, MCall. If newspapers stop deeming this stuff newsworthy (unless there's an outbreak in a school or hospital which exposes large numbers of children or elderly), we can all go on with our lives. Instead, emergency room personnel have to divide their attention among people who don't really need it, while others who do will suffer.
Be careful

I didn't fall victim to the hysteria and I am now sitting at home with this darned flu. Had I used my head and sough medical help when I first had the symptoms (headache, cough, aches, etc.), I probably wouldn't be miserable right now.

These deaths are happening in ones and two's all across the country. Hopefully they will have a vaccine that works by this fall.

THANK GOD. that's one less person the usa has to give cure to. seriously, dying from swine flu is as hard as dying from the common cold. if you have swine flu, just kill yourself. you'll be doing the world a favor.
