Avian Flu

It’s taking its hold on eastern Europe. However, I can’t imagine a pandemic…at least in the Western World. I’m a big fan of human innovation and there’s a very optimistic saying:

“Any catastrophe which can be predicted will be avoided.”

I’ll modify it a little bit, but I still believe in it:

“Any catastrophe which can grab the 6 o’ clock headline will be avoided.”
