WASHINGTON -- Federal officials declared a health emergency on Sunday,
as they confirmed 20 cases of swine flu in five states, mobilized
medicine stockpiles, and warned the public that the number and severity
of incidences were likely to increase.

The officials urged calm, saying the declaration was largely meant to
free up resources and precautionary in nature. Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano, appearing with other officials at a news
conference at the White House on Sunday, compared it to the kind of
alert that goes up before officials know how severe a gathering storm
might become.


Gun-toting Americans are clearly more self-sufficient than the sissy
Europeans. This is great news for everyone except Barney Frank, who's
always secretly wondered what it would be like to be taken by a Somali
