Taking a trip down memory lane, I recently had occasion to peruse some old posts I've written over my (2) years in the blogosphere. Ahhhh, how time flies.
This one, from October 2005, is about the avian bird flu,
about which we were propagandized to fear and prepare for by stocking up on Tamiflu. The government, Big Father/Brother, also promised to buy as much of the vaccine with our tax dollars in order to prepare for this impending crisis.
So, what ever happened? Last I checked, America hasn't been overrun with disease-ridden birds carrying viruses that would mutate and kill us all.
Looking back on this story makes me wonder if Americans still read The Boy Who Cried Wolf
and understand the moral of the story. Yesterday it was bird flu, today it is Iran. Perhaps tomorrow it will be cheesecake.
