Swine flu still hanging in there

I see lot's of headlines about the swine flu. Spain quarantines soldiers. Schools closed in Rome. The WHO chief says world should prepare for severe flu but at the same time "We do not at present expect this to be a sudden and dramatic jump in severe illness and deaths."

Are things serious but not critical, or are they critical but not serious?

I believe nobody knows for sure which way this will go. On one hand everyone needs to be prepared. On the other hand you don't want to panic the sheeple. If everyone in this country would just make some basic preps then there wouldn't be a panic. If you have a couple of month's worth of food in your house at all times then the idea that the flu could mutate into something really nasty and could take 6 weeks to run it's course through society wouldn't seem nearly as frightening.

The downside of that preparation, from the government's point of view, is that people might start to get ideas about having less dependence on government.

My brother and I were discussing this the other day. He pointed out that the MSM and the average American have a maximum attention span of three days. After that, they move on to who wore the skimpiest bikini among the Pop Tarts, etc.

If the flu mutates, it'll be a whole new ballgame.
