Still terrified of the coming pandemic...? Get over it...

here's the pig but where's the lipstick...?


meanwhile, back in the reality-based community...
Flu death toll 'less than feared'

Mexico has revised down the suspected death toll from swine flu from 176 to 101, indicating that the outbreak may not be as bad as was initially feared.

Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova told the BBC that, based on samples tested, the mortality rate was comparable with that of seasonal flu.

comparable with that of seasonsal flu...? wait...! wait just a minute...! i thought i was supposed to be sequestered in some safe spot, isolated from the rest of humanity, wearing a mask, and trembling for fear of catching some deadly virus... now that i've swallowed the hype, hook, line and sinker, you tell me it's 'less than feared'...? have i summoned up all this paranoia for NOTHING...? hmmmmph...
