The Great Panic of 200?

I am sympathetic with those who are trying to sound the alarm on the avian flu. We do need to prepare ourselves for the possibility of a pandemic. I still think that some of this alarm sounding is going to do more harm than good should there be a pandemic outbreak. There is a big difference between cautioning & educating the public and terrifying them. Terrified publics panic, and panic brings with it all new sets of problems.

I'm not going to name blogs that I think are guilty of this, but if you read blogs at all, I'm sure you can figure it out.
