Swine Flu - Death Toll of 149

Is it a mere coincidence that mankind is threatened by swine flu?
Or is it perhaps a sign that the world can’t take any more pigs? Especially, those of the human kind…

A moment of reflection… and the latter already sounds much more likely. How many more thick-skinned, sweaty omnivores can Mother Nature bear before she runs out of patience? Well, I think she did and so did I.

The current main concern is that this pig flu virus has the ability to transmit from humans to humans as a number of the cases who got infected have had no direct exposure to swine – at least not the animal kind, but I bet you they have been really close to the human kind pigs at some point. We all do. It’s inevitable.

And sad. So sad.
