Swine flu death in Texas was a Mexican

Sorry if anyone else has already posted this, but I thought I'd share this link. It seems there are a few people that are freaking out a bit about this swine flu and now that there has been a death, I'm sure it'll be worse. But the media doesn't seem to be giving all the details or at least they weren't last I heard. I'm not a big news watcher. The toddler was from Mexico and his family had taken him to Texas to try to get treatment.

  • Nobody knows where it originated from. It has been out for a month now. We are just hearing about it. You know how the government is. Probably something they cooked up to get rid of the the Iraq's.
