No matter what happens with Swine Flu at this point, the media is tired of the story and tired of your panic. People are dying, it's getting worse and, apparently, the World Health Organization is on the brink of declaring it the WORST POSSIBLE OUTBREAK EVER, a Phase 6 pandemic or something. Phase 6 is like
level 1 is like code red is like hitting a home run is like going all the way.
I suppose the good news is that out of 126,000 cases, only 140 people have died, which makes getting swine flu safer than getting in a car. (I'm pretty sure, anyway; I always use the car example because apparently it's statistically more dangerous to get in a car than it is to do just about anything — except maybe guerilla warfare.)
