Interesting that I keep hearing the media say, as in the article Keith 
posted . . .

> A dangerous and rapidly spreading
> strain of influenza . . . has killed over
> 150 people in Mexico, 
while the World Health Organization website says, as of May 1,
http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_05_01/en/index.html

Country     Cases     Deaths
 Mexico      156        9

Sounds like the fearmongers are confusing total cases with deaths.
Be afraid, be very afraid.
Fear makes us compliant.
