El reg has a good article on birdflu. Why haven’t my local media outlets reported on events such as [Feb 2005] report of probable person to person transmission of bird flu in Vietnam? I find that to be a little more interesting that, say, the latest creepy news from the Michael Jackson Trial.

P2P transmission of new strains of flu = really, really bad in case you haven’t being paying attention (which, let’s face it, is probably the case..)
