We have heard about that,Oliver,& did you know...It could happen again? All it takes is the right mutation in the flu virus(which mutates every year anyway),& Humans (& maybe dogs & cats too) would be history!eek Want a "fun" read? Check out "The Coming Plague" by Laurie Garrett. There are LOTS of nasty diseases that could wipe out Humans,even some they thought they defeated! Then who would open our food cans for us????eek
