Another Flu Vaccine Snafu

The depths of incompetence of the Bush Administration has again been shown by its inability to learn from problems last year with flu vaccine availability. This year, the United States may not receive enough doses of a specific flu medicine (Tamiflu) because it waited too long to place orders. Even if it got the doses, the governments’ reaction to a flu pandemic will probably be inadequate. Recent scientific research has shown that the 1918 pandemic which killed millions of people is similar to the current avian flu making the rounds in Asia today. Should we not treat this threat as seriously as hurricanes or WMD-toting terrorists?

It’s not that Bush doesn’t care about black people; it’s just that he doesn’t care about people in general.
