Swine Flu

I understand that the swine flu has become a public health emergency. This causes me some concern because I am an anxious-ness prone person. Also, Judy read the book The Great Influenza about the flu pandemic of the early 20th century which killed millions. It was, frankly, depressing because although health care has improved enormously since then, a new strain of flu does have the potential to cause great grief around the world. At least that is what she told me, although I wish she hadn't. But there you go. Can't unring the bell, so to speak. So, here's praying that we all stay healthy. Wash those hands folks. Dry skin be darned.
