Uh oh

Yeah, I know it was on Drudge, but this is some scary s**t.

The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t confirm if Solis had swine flu or not.


  1. The media today are all claiming that the 'all hallowed one' seems just fine, even though he took that trip. I can picture his Cabinet members all wearing masks...oh, but I believe he only has had one Cabinet meeting in his first 100 they are pretty safe, not likely to come in contact with the messiah at least for another 3 mos or so.

    Changing topics (why not?), perhaps you may post a commentary upon the Italian cruise liner fighting off Somali pirates using an Israeli security firm hired to protect the ship. There is much here to grab attention, not least of which is someone actually fighing back when the attack first appears. ACLU members on that ship?

  2. I hope they've put President Obama on Tamiflu just out of "an abundance of caution"; if Vice President Biden had to take over either as acting President during an illness, or permanently as a result of death, it would be a true "out of the frying pan -- into the fire" situation.

    They better put Biden on Tamiflu too, because if they both got sick enough that Pelosi had to take the reins....

  3. On the other hand, maybe we could convince the ACLU and ACORN to sponsor a "protest" in D.C., and bus in a bunch of illegal immigrants...


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
