  •  Tuna Fish and Powdered Milk Under Your Bed (5+ / 0-)

    I'm surprised this doesn't have a diary of its own.

    From Atrios:

    "Planning for a possible flu pandemic shouldn't be just a government task but should be a priority for all households and businesses, officials said at a statewide summit Friday.

    "When you go to the store and buy three cans of tuna fish, buy a fourth and put it under the bed," Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt said. "When you go to the store to buy some milk, pick up a box of powdered milk, put it under the bed. When you do that for a period of four to six months, you are going to have a couple of weeks of food. And that's what we're talking about."

    This is what our tax dollars are paying for. At first I thought this was a satire piece from The Onion.

          Bumble Bee? Chicken of the Sea? Star-Kist?

          Actually, it occurred to me that drowning Mike Leavitt in a bathtub might accomplish more than stocking up on cans of fucking tuna fish.
