What's your view on the swine flu? Is this going to be huge or will it be another SARS that we quickly forget about?

The Swine Flu is barely an epidemic. Only a handful of cases in the US. Sanitation and healthcare here is ready for anything it can dish out. I think the news coverage is more to distract from other stories they don't want to cover.

Remember 'Mad Cow Disease'? It was really an non issue. In 20 years of tracking there were less than 25 cases in humans. And then only to humans who ate raw cow brain. More children in the US die from allergy to Latex every day than in the entire history on MAD Cow disease. Why do news reports purposly generate fear?
