The lighter side of swine flu

Swine flu seems like a nice ploy to get a Chrysler bankruptcy off the front page. Again, this proves that the news is anything that sells or creates panic, and is not an indication of noteworthiness.

Seriously, 20 infected in the US? 60 dead in Mexico? This is a pandemic? Give me a break. More people die in car crashes every day. More people die of regular flu every day. Hernia killed over a thousand people in 2005.

Get back to me when one of these "pandemics" kills hundreds of thousands, not dozens. Survivors of the black death and spanish flu viruses would be laughing at our media and hysteria.
