Wake-Up Call: When pigs fly, the good go to Boulder
With two cases of swine flu (the "other white flu") confirmed in Colorado and bumbling Vice President Joe Biden calling for quasi-quarantine, it could be time to go to your bookshelves and dust off that copy of The Stand, Stephen King's 1978 novel. In this epic (it was re-released, uncut, in 1990) battle between good and evil, a man-made virus -- known as Captain Trips -- kills off 99.4 percent of the world's population. The bad people who survive go to Vegas. And where do the good folks go?
To Boulder, of course. Ah-choo!
