Swine Flu Backtracking
Tuesday, May 05, 2009
The CDC recommended schools close if a student tested positive for the H1N1 flu aka Swine Flu.

Schools closed. Interestingly, I don't know of a single for profit daycare that closed. And I reallly don't think that every infected student had a SAHM.

Not a single US citizen had died from the flu, and it appeared to be a relatively mild strain. The media switched sides and started trumpeting the 36,000 people die from regular flu every year talking point.

The CDC then clarified that the schools and daycares should close for TWO WEEKS.

The schools delayed their re-opening dates until the end of May.

A Texan died from H1N1.

The CDC changed their minds, and decided that schools shouldn't close, after all.

Schools are reopening tomorrow.

Does anyone in Washington (or Atlanta) have their act together?
