People are stupid

A Reuters News article about a pig in Afghanistan.
I've also heard that people are needlessly slaughtering pigs in Egypt.
Thankfully, the US relies on science, not superstition, and so we won't see similar reactions here.
Or will we? Pay close attention to pork prices...
If they go down significantly, it means that people in the US are also stupid.
Sigh.

Um, yeah, americans are stupid (as a whole, not necessarily as individuals, though a lot of the individuals are stupid too).
The more one researches swine flu, the more obvious it is that it's not something to freak out about...and yet plenty of people have been freaking out. There is a woman who works at the school here in remote ol Pelican who is so freaked out about it (as if it would ever spread to HERE!) that she printed off some safety/warning sheet and mailed (yes, put a stamp on it and MAILED) copies of it to every student/parent in the school. Serioiusly, she's more paranoid than grandma! (I always get a chuckle about grandma sending out the food safety and lighting warning pages before every family reunion.)
