    You bring up a good point about hysteria. We can expect much of it come this fall. Some of that will be useful, from a public health perspective. Some of it will be frustrating, for physicians, public health officials, and parents (as schools potentially over-react). All of it will depend on how the media handles the dissemination of information. And we're all well aware of the media's track record when it comes to responsible reporting.

    Now are the days we've been working for.

      I was at the University of Oregon for two weeks, I'm now back home in the Seattle area.

      And we're all well aware of the media's track record when it comes to responsible reporting.

      Hooray for newspaper quality journalism. I expect the media to completely blow this out of proportion which frightens the public which creates more demand for the story which frightens the public again [/rant]
