This is it???

Watching the Health & Human Services news conference on how to protect yourself from swine flu. Here's their advice:

1) Wash your hands
2) Cover your nose when you sneeze
3) Don't go to work or school if you're sick

And, if you want, you can wear a paper mask.

This morning Prez Barack-star was in my town and said that `Americans should know the government is doing all it can to control the virus.'

Yep, folks. 159 dead in Mexico. One toddler dead in the U.S. 66 confirmed swine flu cases in the United States in six states, 45 in New York, 11 in California, six in Texas, two in Kansas and one each in Indiana and Ohio. Canada, Austria, New Zealand, Israel, Spain, Britain and Germany also have reported cases of swine flu sickness.

And our government says wash your hands.

Oh my goodness.

BTW, even if the World Health Organization orders emergency vaccine supplies — and that decision hasn't been made yet — it would take at least two more months to produce the initial shots needed for human safety testing.

Again. Oh my goodness.
