More Swine 'I Told You So'

Swine Flu...throw it on top of Y2K, global warming, SARS, bird flu, and so on. A media-generated fear frenzy.

As the World Health Organization raised its infectious disease alert level Wednesday and health officials confirmed the first death linked to swine flu inside U.S. borders, scientists studying the virus are coming to the consensus that this hybrid strain of influenza -- at least in its current form -- isn't shaping up to be as fatal as the strains that caused some previous pandemics.
