  • Pandemic just means in many places, but I really think it's the media that has made it bad. They want to scare the crap out of people an I don't like that. I mean, look at the stats you posted, it really is just like the regular flu and probably with just as many deaths as any other flu.

  • Im so tired of hearing about it but it is tragic whats happening. I mean it something that we should all be aware of but I remember when I was little you never heard of any out break of illness or sickness...some things are just taken too far. But Im glad that theres coverage but it gets old hearing it everyday on the news
