Fuck Bird Flu

Bubonic plague has just been found in L.A.!
"Bubonic plague is not usually transmissible from person to person," said Jonathan Fielding, head of Los Angeles County public health.

Fielding explained the disease is not uncommon among animals such as squirrels but seldom spreads to humans.

"Fortunately, human plague infection is rare in urban environments, and this single case should not be a cause for alarm in the area where this occurred," he said.
But isn't that exactly the same story as bird flu? Hasn't all the hysteria been based on the concept that avian flu MIGHT ONE DAY become transmitted from human to human? So what's the difference????

Oh, wait! I've got it: Donald Rumsfeld doesn't own stock in Bubonic Plague antiviruses.
