It’s really not Swine Flu

Folks, I’ve been out a few days with the flu.

I suppose it was one of the regular flu’s and not the super-came-out-of-the-blue-hard-to-treat flu’s, as I am back at the office today. I feel a little stuffed up, and my limbs still ache, but otherwise I’m back to normal.

Believe me, you don’t want to hear descriptions of my symptoms when I was not “back to normal”.

Anyway, the purpose of this post is to point out something you may not have realized. This so-called “Swine Flu” is really not the traditional Swine Flu we’ve had for hundreds of years.

This thing is a morphing of one of the traditional Swine Flu strains, a strain of one of the common strains of human flu, and the ever-popular newsmaker, bird flu.

If I were a conspiracy theorist—which of course I am not—I’d think someone was cooking this stuff up in a lab somewhere.
