The sky is falling! The sky is falling! That was the message yesterday in the hysteria driven news reports about swine flu. Good heavens, I have never heard so much hype about something BEFORE it happened. If one read carefully, instead of reading the headlines, it appears there have been only 20 confirmed swine flu deaths in Mexico City not over 150 as the headlines scream..........Well I haven't kissed a pig in a long time, so I'm going to tune out all this hyperbole.
Then this morning on my friends' TV is the flooding in the Texas area. Whew, we did have a storm at the beach last night that had me covering my head with the pillow. It WAS scary. And, as usual, people drove into underpasses where they exist in Houston and guess what, there cars are still there. It makes me shake my head in wonderment that people do this over and over and over.
Ok, enough of all of that - I'm off to talk to the birds. They don't talk back with silliness.
