The swine flu just will not go away. I try to avoid mentioning it but it keeps coming around. In today's paper there were three different items about swine flu, and on the Register Guard's website, a few more, including a link to a map of swine flu outbreaks.
1. An item about school closures due to swine flu in Oregon.
2. Swine flu outbreak map
3. Cases of swine flue in Washington state
4. Swine flu seems to have boosted tourism somehow: Swine flu a windfall for some ports
Why do I continue, in spite of my intent, to be fascinated by this constant undercurrent of swine flu news? I suppose it's because, in part, my way of dealing with "them" -- it's so damn obvious this is one huge twisted ball of disinformation and distraction, to instill confusion and fear, as well as get us ready for the next thing.
