Instead of listening to the radio/tv/government on the bird flu that will soon ravage our country leaving all of us dead, let's have a healthy debate why that scenario may NOT kill us all. IMHO I feel this particular strain of bird flu has been around since 1997. As all viruses mutate, this one in that amount of time has not mutated from human to human contact. Why, after all of these years, do I think it will now? Granted, I think the bird flu will arrive in this country and affect our flocks. I don't think it is likely that it will be human to human contact. If it were, I think the virus may have the opportunity to weaken and not be such a virulent strain. I know the movie is supposed to air on TV May 9, to further the mass hysteria. Anyone out there with some logic to spread on this thing? Where are you BobK? You seem to have a scientific background, please enlighten us!
