let's try and get a feel for how many of us have really had ANY contact (in whatever form) with this Swine Flu.

I posted earlier this spring that when I went to the doc for my annual physical, two people DIED in the office while I was there. I left quietly, but they wrote me a Tami script- haven't needed it, but there is no doubt this is highly contagious and far more lethal than reported.
Again- I mention (to the boredom, I'm sure, of posters who've read this a million times) that we live in Chicago- and to go from where we live to the city center- about 23-25 miles- usually takes 1.5-2.5 hours EACH WAY, even if it's not rush hour. Now, we can zip in and out of the city in 30 minutes, though there is construction, minimal lanes, etc. No one is on the roads. Are they sick or dead? Are they afraid of being sick or dead and not going to work? In this economy I can't believe people would abuse sick time.....
Would love to know what's happening elsewhere- physical, tangible observations to support the ridiculously under-reported news.
