As the father of two college students, this season has the vague feel of preparation for battle -- with schools sending our literature on their procedures in the event of a Swine Flu outbreak.
From the beginning, it's been a tricky story for us -- excessive airing of the most dire warnings makes it sound like the worst of media wolf-crying, and yet we see what the Government is telling us, and we hear the dire words.
Tonight our own Robert Bazell, who is at the CDC (a two-day meeting on this subject) will answer some of the questions we've received after soliciting them on the air last night.
One more thing: While it's not for everyone, I wanted to recommend a very funny place: FAILblog. The name will quickly become self-explanatory. Remember that I said it's not for everyone.
We hope you can join us tonight.
