Captain Trips

OK, so we don't have a cool name for this new swine flu -- should we start tallying ideas?  It's too bad the media gave up being grown ups and can no longer be trusted to accurately portray what's going on... This certainly sounds scary:
I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from "under control". As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200.
