swine flu 2: this time it's personal

it's funny how, after weeks of over-the-top coverage of the H1N1 virus (f/k/a swine flu), the story has all but disappeared, at least it's off the front page. maybe this will bring it back.

i can't help thinking that there's got to be a happy medium. surely the media can report about the dangers of an epidemic and the tracking of the disease's progress without slipping into total flip-out mode.
