So a report gets released today saying that Swine flu is no more threatening than regular flu and I've heard some soundbites of a white house spokeswoman saying that the administration may have "overreacted" in regards to the disease's impact.

Yet...searching around on the major news websites (cnn, msn, etc) I couldn't find an article about that. I did, however, find twenty-three articles published in the last twenty-four hours warning people of the dangers of Swine flu and how to protect your family from it.

Wierd, huh?

I concur. That and playing Six Degrees of Conspiracy theory just seems to have more legs than common sense.

we have become so unchallenged and complacent that we are forced to manufacture our own crises.

In the winter this could become a lot worse. But for now I think this a pig overreaction.

Agreed. the big flu epidemics have been worst when the virus rebounds. So next fall and winter could be the real disaster.
