    Several confirmed cases in the school system I work in. Am I in hysterics? No. Am I psyched about the prospect of catching the flu? Not so much.

    Anyway, I do think it's pretty serious stuff. Especially since, as others have pointed out, it's a strain we haven't seen before and, with such high rate of transmission, it definitely has the potential to mutate. It is news when the flu sticks around through the summer months and there are major outbreaks in early September. It's certainly not a crisis, and the media is definitely sensationalistic about it, but it qualifies as newsworthy to me.

    indeed.

    the part of swine flu that has people worried is (i believe) the fact that it can kill healthy (young) people, which is different from normal flu which usually only kills the old and infirm.

    combine this with the school season beginning and, yes, it is worth taking note of.
    I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life.

    The very people who administer and create the vaccines are refusing to take it themselves. + urging their loved ones not to take it...
