Can we talk about…swine flu?

Can we talk about…how we’ve found “patient zero” and now need everyone to know his name, where he lives, and what he looks like?

I know that swine flu isn’t a huge deal. More people die from the regular flu every year. But it’s new, shiny, sexy for the media, and so they must cover it.

Meanwhile, they have decided to exploit this poor little boy–a mere 5 years old– by publishing his face all over the news.

Don’t people realize that some people have lost family members, relatives, etc., and that maybe they are angry? I hope to God that people realize it’s not this boy’s fault that he got the disease first, and that it spread from him, but people are irrational in times of grief, and sadness, and I cannot help but think maybe we should have let that story die before it hit CNN’s website…
