When I first read about the swing flu, my first thought was ‘Oh dear.’ My second thought was, ‘Wait a minute.’ The media feeds on whispers of pandemonium like a pig on slop: If it bleeds, it leads.

Senator Chuck Schumer: pandemic funding ‘little porky things.*’
[UPDATE]: And I thought that I was being harsh. Back in the day, Senator Schumer bragged about removing the funding, in fact.
