Be a good neighbor

May 1, 2009

Dear Readers, I hope you’ll join me in trying to calm the hysteria that seems to be running rampant across the country.  Shell just sent me an article detailing the many hateful and racist remarks and accusations being made against our neighbors to the south, all under the cloak of concern for our own well-being.

Of course any new and unexplained virus is going to cause us to sit up and take notice, but we need to be reasonable.  This virus isn’t the fault of illegal immigrants.  The World Health Organization has made it very clear that panic is not warranted nor helpful in any way.  Pandemics are a naturally occurring phenomenon that happen every 30-40 years.  “Pandemic” simply means that people over a wide geographic area are afflicted with the same virus.  It doesn’t mean we’re all going to die as some media alarmists would have us believe.

So please, do the right thing…wash your hands, cover your mouth when you sneeze and be a good neighbor.  I know this is a serious topic, but to lighten things up a little, watch this clip.  You don’t want to be this guy:
