And Don't Forget...

My Way News:
MOSCOW (Reuters) - The deadly bird flu virus, which has hit Asia, Europe and Africa, may spread to the United States late this year and risks mutating dangerously there, Russia's top animal and plant health inspector said on Thursday.

'We think that H5N1 (strain of bird flu virus) will reach the United States in autumn,' Sergei Dankvert told Reuters.
Yep! It's still coming, and nobody thinks otherwise at this point. The only question remaining is whether and when the virus will mutate to some more easily transmitted strain, and how deadly that strain will be. Looks like a real fun holiday season for later this year. Let's hope the Repugs lose Congress, or there won't be anything at all to celebrate and way too much to vituperate.
