Pandemics have always been both a fear and an interest of mine. Fear, obviously for the future, and interest in historical events like the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. So, as you might expect, my antenna has been all a buzz lately with the threat of an Avian Flu Pandemic.
Here's a link to an article I read today: A Nightmare Scenario
Also this: The Next Pandemic which has a roundup of several articles.
I remember reading a few years back that the head of the CDC had a remote cabin for his family to go to in case of another pandemic. That news certainly didn't do much to make me think that maybe I just worry too much. Realistically, how do you prepare? Other than living on a mountain somewhere like Grizzly Adams?
