I wouldn't worry too much, swine flu is just hyped by the media. And anyway, we're most certainly better equipt to deal with something like this than we were in 1918. Here in Britain i rarely hear about swine flu anymore, and when we do it's about the number of cases dropping.
don't open your eyes you won't like what you see
the devils of truth steal the souls of the free
don't open your eyes take it from me
I have found you can find happiness in slavery
