Concerning an earlier flu panic . . .

By Michael Fumento

Swine flu panic purveyors will surely call me insane, evil, or both for trying to spoil their fun. I haven't looked but I assume they've already started. They will, as always, ignore my track record on heterosexual AIDS, Ebola virus, SARS, and avian flu - the last of which I slammed both during the first outbreak of hysteria in 1997-98 ("Chicken Little Gets the Flu" in the Wall Street Journal) and the second ongoing one. Let them. I just discovered that even the federal government now admits the first avian flu pandemic was "a panic."
