Another swine flu death has occurred, and an entire NYC school is shut down with a massive outbreak. Are we out of the woods yet? It seems clear that we likely are not, and things will probably be worse in the fall. A public service announcement on the radio today told of how when a pandemic strikes there will likely be a break down in public services, and you should have water, medications, etc. stockpiled in your home. This is exactly what happened in 1918. Philadelphia, for one place, was swept by near total anarchy. This was fueled, in no small part, by the government telling the citizens there was no epidemic while 5,000 people were dying in the city each day. Cade, My friend and fellow resident says he will defend his home with massive amounts of firepower when the pandemic arrives. He will feed his dogs from the flesh of those that he executes on his property, and himself as well if need be.
