Where to share your swine-flu anxieties
Just when we thought swine-flu stories had flown away like the avian variety, we're suddenly inundated with news about, for instance, 97 Air Force Academy students with the ailment, as well as five students at the University of Northern Colorado. So where to voice concerns and seek answers to pressing questions? Try swineflu.org, a nationwide bulletin board with discussions segregated by states. The Colorado forum boasts more than a dozen different topics, moderated by people with names such as "FluMom" and "doomsmom."
They may not make you feel fine about the swine, but at least they share your fears.
