The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

The Tao of Bird Flu
18. In today’s modern world, some aspects of a pandemic are increased, and some are diminished.

Bird Flu Notes
Earlier reports that an Indian man had died from bird flu have apparently proved incorrect. Here are two stories. (Deepikaglobal, Channel News Asia) They both seem to be about the same man, although there is still some confusion about that since the spelling of the man’s name is different in both stories. Read them and see if you can make any sense of them.

Carl at Simply Left Behind points out that Indonesia had its nineteenth human bird flu death Saturday. Good point. Most of the publicity recently has been about the spread of bird flu to various countries in Europe, and fears that it will spread even further. In the meantime we should not lose sight of the fact that people are actually dying. And a death in Indonesia is not insignificant. Think about all the Westerners who travel to and from the Orient, carrying germs back and forth.

Experts in England are trying to predict where migratory paths will take bird flu next.

And some in England expect bird flu to hit that country soon, even as early as this week.
