Cough, cough, oink, oink

Howdy from land of the pig flu. As I'm sure you've read, the entire Fort Worth school district closed Thursday for pig flu. Now the Lewisville district has closed.

Other school districts are just closing one school. But it's throughout in the DFW area....Plano, Dallas, Richardson.

Here at my work, we've on standby with our "flu pandemic" crisis plan. Which, as a PR person, very impressive we have various crises plans based on various illnesses. It makes sense...during a pandemic, a press conference with a bunch of people in one room is not a good idea.

I'll end with a good joke I heard on the radio:

What do you get when you cross bird flu and pig flu?
That's when pigs fly.
