The Pig Flu: Could it bring the nation to a halt?

WHO: Swine flu moves toward pandemic

I think we are all aware of the flu now and the fact that immediate treatment is recommended. Is public hysteria warranted if it "get's the word out?"

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

No, public hysteria (nor media hysteria nor even more importantly government hysteria) is not warranted, even if it gets the word out.
