I'm not calling it swine flu. It's H1N1.

I was watching NBC News tonight and learned that Egypt is ordering the slaughter of all hogs, even though the flu is not caused by or transmitted by the presence of hogs, or the eating of hogs.

Lebanon has banned the 'greeting kiss', a popular custom.

And France has banned extra-marital affairs.

Been a long time...

Sorry, I've been working to re-elect our mayor, so I've been sort of busy doing other things. The incumbent won re-election 75% to 25%. Our main strategy was to simply ignore the other guy. I think it worked.

Anyhow, after all this time away, the only thing I can think of to write is that I don't think the 'Madonna falling off a horse' story is a big deal.

A better story would have involved the horse falling off Madonna. Shades of the Catherine the Great legend.
