  •  I don't know what to think... (0+ / 0-)

    some of the actions that have been taken by the CDC and WHO raised my eyebrows.  It may be standard to react defensively but it seems to me they are very concerned about this (and they are the experts).  

    The media doesn't seem to be discussing it a lot although i've moved on to pre-draft coverage on the NFL network.

    Then i get these updates on twitter from BNO News and there have been a few that are surprising.  I haven't heard anything elsewhere but he (guy over at BNO news) did have a report that

    a newspaper report which said Obama had contact with a swine flu patient

    It was the chief of a mexican museum and he was hospitalized hours after having contact with Obama

    Note that this chief has now died from swine flu.

    I don't know what report and i couldn't find it with google (but that may be because if you google obama and swine flu you get thousands of reports of him monitoring the situation).  Anyone else hear this?

      you verify your sources? This one ain't the NY Times or Daily Kos.

        but they seem over hysterical about this, i keep getting alersts IN ALL CAPS.

        they need to calm the fuck down.

        and that sort of reporting is irresponsible.

        wanted to see if anyone else had heard anything about this.

          maybe something will pop up later. Maybe not.
