Swine Flu in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS- When the swine flu hits the fan, contrary to all earlier scaremongering, H1N1 is no scatological disaster. I have an example: Without even looking, we know of two confirmed cases of swine flu in Colorado Springs School District 12. You wouldn’t know it to talk to the school, the city, the newspapers, or County Health. Is that odd?

No one in affluent neighborhoods wants TV cameras at their door, to interview surgical-masked family members in a living room covered in plastic.

In households with a doctor in the family, the afflicted is served Tamilflu and no one is the wiser. In others it’s enough to visit the doctor’s office to hear it’s just the flu for God’s sake. Leave the child in bed to recuperate. No need to keep siblings from going to school. Except from the rumors that will spread, there’s no cause for alarm.

We confirmed the stories from D-12 with phone calls, and so can you. Check with who should or should not be alerting you. Do it. Good grief, think of how many other unreported cases must be out there. Our two cases had to come from somewhere!

Hopefully when the Swine Flu vaccine ramps up, you’ll have seen what H1N1 really looks like up close.
