Too Close to Home

April 29, 2009

Arizona’s first confirmed swine flu case is a young boy who attends the elementary school down the street.

Safe to say I have taken a sharp left turn from this morning’s peaceful glow into frenzied panic.  I know a lot of the hysteria right now is media-driven, but apparently I am a sucker for media fear-mongering.

We might be holing up in the house for a while.  No!  We shouldn’t let this panic keep us from living our lives!  On the other hand, freaking PANDEMIC.  And what’s wrong with just playing at home for the next oh, say 3 months?

I really must calm down.  RIGHT?!?!  Oh shit shit shit.

    it is scary. texas has actually had 26 confirmed cases this year. the CDC has a fact page that may make you feel better: http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/key_facts.htm. educate yourself & then ignore the media hype, that’s what i say. : )
