swine flu!

Well, the newsmedia have run, um, hog wild with the swine flu story, and Wall Street has followed suit. But today President Obama put the whole thing in perspective.

“We are closely monitoring the emerging cases of swine flu in the United States,” Mr. Obama said, speaking at the National Academy of Sciences. “This is obviously the cause for concern and requires a heightened state of alert, but it’s not a cause for alarm.”

Over at Don't Worry About The Government, stalwart podcasters Ethan Cheng, Roni Weiss and myself debate the hysteria over swine flu, and, more importantly, whether it should be called swine flu.
