Swine flu

After a week of heated rambling, the hype-flu simmers down and no further action need be taken. After all, it's only people in the 'third world' that are going to die from it. And not from 'it' at all, of course, but from the fact that they are so poor that their immune systems have been compromised. So once the hype is over, they'll be forgotten about and the 1.5 billion dollars Obama has just given to [fill in corrupt company here] will have been given to grateful shareholders.

Yes it is cynical, but we're all shiny eyed idealists here. (Though not philosophical idealists you understand. That wouldn't do at all).
