re: #135 Killgore Trout

I’m pretty immune to panic these days. I’m pretty burned out on all the overblown stories bloating around. Pig Flu has me a little nervous.

I’m still waiting for a clearer scientific analysis. Anyway, I suspect the bad parts have already been around the world a couple of times before the CDC gets wind of it. The 1918 pandemic was perhaps a one-time thing, and a dozen factors today say it’s unlikely to occur again, no more likely than a widespread outbreak of the bubonic plague.
