42

Hooray! One more thing for us all to worry about!

So, let's draw from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

DON'T PANIC.

In large, friendly letters.

Here are some useful links:

CDC's What's New on the Swine Flu Site

Lots of information about what's going on with less hysteria than the media.

Planning ahead (and honestly, this is a really good time to plan ahead):

Flu planning checklist

And for the bottom-line, common sense thought of the night:

Wash your hands! Often and with enthusiasm. Twenty seconds minimum. WITH SOAP!

Seriously.

With love from the blogger who does read MMWR for fun, god help us.

Go listen to some music: "42" from the album Viva La Vida by Coldplay. Yeah, I know the lyrics are morbid. But according to The Hitchhiker's Guide, 42 is the answer to everything. And while I'm aiming for lighthearted here, this post is very serious.
