OK, so the next person who whines to me about how scary this swine flu thing is GETS IT!!!!!

1 in 5 U.S. kids that have *something* going on (autism, asthma, allergies, ADHD, learning disabilities, mood/behavioral disorders, diabetes, childhood cancer, and so on and so forth) - THAT is scary.

600+ people WW have been diagnosed so far with swine flu [7.15 pm - so fine, rumor has it that there are now 800+ confirmed cases. Still...] How many kids were diagnosed with *something* in that same time frame?

The swine flu is just a friggin' flu, people. Let's keep some perspective.

[and I DO know what I'm talking about - I did the *regular* flu this winter, remember? And several sinus infections, and bronchitis, and a cancer scare, and pertussis(?)/bronchitis(?)/mono. Yes, nursing everybody thu it sucked. But we did it]
