Modern leprosy

Swine flu, Mexico, and me

From the May, 2009 issue

Swine Flu panic hit its peak the last week of April and beginning of May. Non-stop media coverage had everyone in Michigan and the rest of the United States whipped up into a froth of fear and hysteria, afraid for their very lives. It gave everyone something to talk about, something to get their minds off the economy and the wars.

I didn't realize any of this because I was busy snorkeling coral reefs and walking along beautiful beaches in - you guessed it - Mexico.
