Listen to a Real Senator Talk about Bird Flu

On C-SPAN. Tom Harkin (and others). 2 hours. Fast forward to around the 1:00:00 mark -- it's a piece of Washington Journal.

Look for Washington Journal Entire Program on Avian Flu (10/24/2005) on the homepage linked above, or search it out if it's not there (i.e., bumped by other events).

Harkin is what I'd called "reality-based."

Some of the callers' "questions" make me despair of any ration of rationality out there. Yeesh.

Well, don`t want to do the Python `dead parrot` sketch, but the govt here is saying that bird `flu will kill an epected minimum of 50,000 people.
People are also being told that although the risk of contracting Avian flu from eating poultry or eggs is small, that they should ensure all bird type produce is properly cooked before consumption.
Cynics are saying that bird flu will solve the UK`s future pensions problem.
