Yes I agree, and it is of course early for my statement to the bloodline. I watched the bird flu for a couple years and I understand how it will work. I just saying in hope this will somewhat be contained.WE are all in the same boat here, and no one really knows WHAT is going to happen.

All Fort Worth schools closed amid flu concerns


FORT WORTH -- Fort Worth will close all of its 144 schools through at least May 8 because of swine flu concerns.

Superintendent Melody Johnson said only necessary staff at central administration would work.

The school district has about 80,000 students and 11,000 employees.

So far, Texas has 16 confirmed cases of swine flu.

Johnson had closed four campuses earlier in the day after probable cases were reported at those schools. They were McLean Middle, McLean 6th Grade Center, South Hills Elementary and Westcliff Elementary.

Are there any big American sports events over the weekend or next week?

If they are closing schools so rapidly, then US will follow suit to Mexico and close sporting events, like they did with the football.

This will be a good test as to how TPTB will respond. If WHO announces level 6 then dig in people, it's gonna be a rough ride.

A handful of cases are from the Polk County area, including an adult who either visited Mexico or was close to someone who did, health officials said. The person was not hospitalized but was given anti-viral drugs.

Sports generally take a front seat here in Texas. About a week ago, before this started (or to the point that it was all that was ever talked about), there were a few high schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that were letting some kids take the TAKS test (a state test that you have to pass in order to graduate) late because a cross country date was on the same day. Needless to say, a lot of people were upset.

All of the school closings here are crazy. They never close the schools, FOR ANYTHING. On the random day that there is ice/sleet, the roads have to be nearly impassable for them to even consider it. It makes it worse that the smaller school districts (like the one that I went to) follow the bigger school disctricts (like Fort Worth ISD or Dallas ISD), so if the SHTF when it came to weather (or anything), you were out of luck if the big schools weren't affected.

My mom was talking to my cousin earlier and my cousin was saying that there were four confermed cases in her town (I can't remember the name right now, but it's a really small town outside of Lubbock). If what she said is true, then it kind of unnerves me, because I know that the news isn't reporting those numbers.

The only thing that I know of is the NBA playoffs that are going around all over the country. There tends to be anywhere from 2-4 games a day, but the first round is nearing it's end, so it dies off for a few days and then will pick up speed again next week.

I live in Denton County and yea, they never close schools anywhere in Texas. On the local news about an hour ago they said there are about 11 cases in Tarrant County and 6 or something in Dallas County, and 2 suspected in Denton County plus a few in Ft. Worth. Its starting to get really crazy up here in the DFW.

Ugh is it just me, or is it depressing refreshing this page and seeing 4 more posts every time with the infected count going up every post?
I can assure you that when I go outside or spend time doing something other than reading these posts, I feel much happier.

Not to belittle the constant flow of data and organization that is going on here, but a word of advice: Don't dwell on this or worry about getting sick. Get out once in a while and just eat healthy. I know that if I was on here all day, I would get depressed. It's much nicer outside where the sun shines.

Good call elitegamer23.

All those actors doing their Thespian kissy, kissy should have repercussions in a few weeks.

I wonder when we'll start to see TV reporters and even BO wearing a respirator for appearances?

What is this 'outside' you speak of Sir?

Is that an archaic concept from pre-2009, in the Halcyon days where people were free to venture and interact.

Ahhh, those were the days my friend, those were the days....

The data is very important, almost 65% of the data here is showing to be accurate so it is actually the most credible source on the internet.
BTW really like your avatar.
