Swine flu has killed 30 people in Mexico, and symptoms have shown up in several places in the US. Every year they talk about a pandemic, and now they are talking about it again as they talk about swine flu. However, if we believed them (whoever they are) everytime they came out with something like this we'd never leave our homes again.
