The H1N1 Swine Flu Scare: Oh Noes!

This thing is kinda ridiculous.
On one hand we've got the media people blowing it way out of proportion and many people buying right on into that and getting all freaked out while on the other hand some people are completely oblivious and not taking it seriously at all.

The statement made by the President that this is "cause for concern, but not panic," is a very good way to put it.

So far this thing hasn't been any more deadly than the normal seasonal flu. Obviously you're going to want to cover your mouth when you caught or sneeze, wash your hands regularly, but that stuff is all common sense for any flu.

I'm more worried about what the government and citizens might do in an overreaction than I am about the actual flu itself.
