I've been watching a lot of stuff on network news, and cable news about this Swine Flu epidemic. I've NEVER seen anything like this in my life. To me, this reminds me of a bad movie, and it also reminds me a HELL of a lot of the opening part of Stephen King's The Stand.
In The Stand, the novel and the miniseries opens with a flu outbreak but that was through a virus created by the US military. This is not fiction this time around, it's reality.
This also reminds me of the 1990's movie Outbreak as well. The media has been going way overboard on it, and I don't know what to make of it all. I was wondering if anyone else like me feels like they've woken up to one hell of a bad fuckin' nightmare?
My hope is that interstate travel in the US is not suspended before Mother's Day 'cause I REALLY wanna see my mom and dad that weekend. I don't see them often.
