2,000 students sick with Swine Flu at Washington State University

http://www.mercurynews.com/sports/ci_13270103?source=yahooNewsML

The university suggests students get some sleep and drink plenty of fluids.  Symptoms seem to last 3-5 days and no one has been hospitalized.  And the media was causing hysteria over this?  90,000 could die this fall…… ::)

Scary to think when a legit outbreak comes how so many people will discard it because of the media's track record over the past few years.

They need to take a basic childhood lesson from "Henny Penny":

"The phrase, 'The sky is falling,' has passed into the English language as a common idiom indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent."

Well, you'll know it's serious when they're too sick or dead to even get someone on the air.
