Bird-Flu ... and the US.

I am quite surprised to see how little coverage the bird-flu crisis is getting in the US press. It may not be the end of the world... just yet, but it could become a big deal and should be taken seriously for its potential danger.
Here is an interesting article from the IHT which seems to give a fair assessment of what has happened so far... and a grim perspective of what MAY happen in the near future. If you think this is only a problem that won't reach the Americas, think again:
It is in the realm of reasonable probability that H5N1 will reach the United States this summer or early autumn.
