Yeah - the closest weekend works.  There was an article in the Dallas
Morning News today that said this swine flu won't be as bad as people think,
but a lot of people here are flipping out about it.  Cruise ships are

that has cancelled half their flights to Mexico because of all this.  Take a
deep breath people.  Panic is not pretty.
