    Unidentified flue outbreak in Western Ukraine.

    And deaths there are skyrocketing. This strain of the flu is essentially viral pneumonia. If you think the swine flu pandemic is bad, it is child's play compared to this bug. We had better pray that this one does not spread. If it does, we will be looking at 1918 all over again, or possibly even worse.

    Western Ukraine was hit by a severe epidemic of unidentified influenza, tentatively diagnosed by doctors as viral pneumonia. The number of dead has climbed dramatically. Doctors advise Western Ukrainians to stay at home and use preventive medication. The first pedestrians wearing face masks have been seen on Lviv streets

    Sounds like a crisis... can't waste a crisis.

    THAT being said, (had to keep CC happy with some hyper-partisanship) I'll wait until this pans out a little more bfore getting too worried. Not because I don't understand the dangers, trust me, I do. But Western Ukraine isn't really home to a well funded, well equipped medical infrastructure, and this could be a false alarm.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Hey, you are not being fair to Ukraine. Just look how they handled Chernobyl.....

    Oops, you may be right after all.

    This is all Bush's fault.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Bush is not even in power now, and this is taking place in the Ukraine, not America.

    You should re-examine your hatred of Bush, and possibly seek some professional help.

    To be fair it's Chornobyl (Ukrainian pronouciation) and most importantly when Chornobyl occured Ukraine was a captive nation within the prison system known as the Soviet Union. The USSR was controlled by Russians from Moscow and since Chornobyl was in Ukraine the Russians could care less that millions of Ukrainians were in danger from a poorly designed and controlled reactor. Furthermore Russian soil and population was barely impacted by the radiation erruption since Ukraine and Belarus were impacted.

    My mother's home village is only 100 kilometers downwind from Chornobyl and even today virtually no one under 50 lives there anymore. Most were smart enough tp escape to parts of Ukraine, Lithuania, and some very very stupid ones moved to Russia.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    I would love to know how one can "wish" their hands.

    Is that a European thing?

    Yup, and they most likely 'wish' that you would wash your "mutha****in hands also.
