    • Nancy, from the get go I felt that something just wasn’t right about this “pandemic.” We kept hearing about all those people who died from the Swine Flu adding up to about 1,000, yet I knew that the CDC had reported that the “normal” flu took about 36,000 each year. So much seemed to be made of a flu strain that had less of an affect than the seasonal flu. Something just didn’t seem right.

      And to top it off, I was personally hearing of only 1 or 2 children contracting it and in both cases very mild. I heard more about “fears” and school systems being shut down than anything else. Visions of the time back regarding the bird flu went through my mind and we all know how much of a bust that was.

      So here we are now, several months later, and there’s an overstock of the vaccine, the seasonal flu has hardly been mentioned and Big Pharma has made a whole slew of money. And I wonder how many palms were greased in the process.

  2. I think you’re exactly right in that it just didn’t feel right deep down, despite all the noise and panic around it. Thanks for the great post.
