Please keep chat and one-liners to a minimum. This thread is intended to be a one-stop-shop for all of todays NEWS and info related to the Mexican Swine Flu.
To make it faster for everyone to catch up on the actual NEWS, PLEASE PLEASE minimize chat, jokes, bashing the administration, soapboxes, and so forth. These live threads can become useless monster threads if everyone throws in their one-liners, and we all have 'em! So let's try to keep this thread useful for the latest NEWS.
Thank you all in advance.
IIRC, I first heard of HIV in late 78 or early 79.
Like I said before its tough to triangulate a travel advisory! So it takes a little longer for her to find someone else to blame for it not being out on time.

If I’ve understood it correctly, during the 1918 Spanish flu, people who were younger and had the healthiest immune systems, actually suffered the greatest mortality.
It was the devastating hyper-response of robust immune systems in overdrive that hastened death in this demographic. So, if this is correct, in some pandemics, and perhaps in this one, the weaker might actually fare better.
Wow. I wonder if a cure or vaccine will ever be made?
I’ve been told the reason for that in mexico was because your animals get stolen if you don’t. In the old days they’d keep their donkey in their front room at night.
There’s so much we take for granted in america.
I am trying to find that out now,but no luck so far.
The kids at St Francis Prep have recovered. Several of those testing for swine flu were shooting hoops yesterday. I find this all very confusing. But if this were to be proven as bio terrorism I will not be surprised. Four or five different viruses in one is, at least to a medical illiterate like me, very strange.
I just disinfected our sets of keys. I do that from time to time but will probably start doing it more often.
It's starting to sound like a manufactured crisis.
An empty limo pulled up to the White House, and Barack 0bama got out.
It’s the Mexican Swine Flu! Let’s all portray Mexico as Mexico really is “a turd world” Hell Hole and petri dish for Terrorism! Get aboard the Express FReepers.
It wasn’t an instruction. It was a request. A nicely worded, logical one, IMO.
President Obama was golfing with his Commerce Secretary and Trade Representative as the U.S. Government announced a public health emergency.
Arthur Ashe was another celebrity who tested positive for HIV in 1988, following blood transfusions. Ashe kept his diagnosis quiet until the year before his death in 1993.
I remember my son was just a newborn and the news was reporting every night on the Americans taken hostage by the Iranians, mass murder/suicide in Guyana, and Aids. I was thinking what a horrible time to be bringing a new baby into the world.
Inside the Home of a Swine Flu Victim
Patrick Henshaw Says His Family Has Been Homebound Because of the Virus. Henshaw believes the virus came from Mexico to San Antonio, where the annual Fiesta San Antonio draws hundreds of people from around Texas.
I heard a dr on TV say that it might help if you’e had a shot and it wouldn’t hurt to get one if you didn’t before.
