    I see the fear mongering coming. It is may and that means the sweeps for the TV programmers. I wonder how many shows we will see that sees the world ending

    OMG, it's the FLU.........people in total panic over what officials now admit is ...for the most part...a mild virus. The very young, very old, persons with compromised immune systems are, as usual , the most suseptible. Plain good old fashioned common sense such as handwashing, and covering mouth and nose when coughing/sneezing is the best advice.

    Why, back in my day we worked around pigs and never worried about catching anything off of them. Maybe we had immunities because we was always around them. Nowdays, the closest people get to pigs is when they are eating a hot dog or pork rinds, or watching that moving picture show called "Babe." Maybe if they got out more and exposed themselves to some of their environment, everything wouldn't make em sick. But no, they just want to sit around watching television and being afraid of a pig flu, and them thar Arabic peoples and stuff, the bunch of whiners!

    My personal opinion is this, this mass hysteria on a mild flu called H1N1 is just a trial run for something much bigger to come.

    Thanks, KXII for keeping us updated. Would like to see this updated once or twice a day if possible. I'm hearing from a medical worker in Cooke Co. that they have "a probable case" but that they were trying to figure out how this person could've possibly gotten it. (Probably NOT the swine flu if you ask me; but I'm not in the medical field). Also, my daughter will be flying here from another state. I little reminder of how to keep safe in public (ie: planes, shopping carts....) would be nice! Carry those wipes and hand sanitizer people!!!!

    I don't think that there necessarily needs to be "confirmation" in a county to have action. Apparently, the CDC is swamped and taking a while to confirm/deny cases. Wouldn't that mean there could be MANY people with H1N1 that the public are not aware of? KTEN is reporting on a probable Grayson Co case(s), and it hasn't been updated for days. The longer it takes to confirm, the longer it would be in public circulation in school systems, etc.
