I just received this email from someone in Wisconsin: Sherrie, I have been following your blog page on the internet since it was first posted, and I'm finding it quite informative. I thought I would share this information with you from my town of Platteville, WI this morning. Between the hours of approximately 3 and 4 AM this morning, I heard the engines from what sounded like small aircraft making at least 2 and maybe 3 passes over my house. This morning, I awakened to check the weather as I always do from the Weather Channel Internet Service. The following was posted by the National Weather Service from LaCrosse, WI.....
Eastern Europe on alert as suspected swine flu cases rise in Ukraine
Ukraine's European neighbors took action to prevent the fast-moving flu from spreading outside the country, where the Ukrainian Health Ministry reported at least 174 deaths and more than 1 million infections due to acute respiratory illness as of Tuesday.
The World Health Organization (WHO) assumes the majority are swine flu cases, according to a statement.
Slovakia, which reported its first swine flu death on Friday, announced it would close most road crossings in the east along its shared border with Ukraine, while Russia plans to examine people entering the country from Ukraine at checkpoints along its western border.
The World Health Organization dispatched a team to UkraineThe decision to shut down border crossings in Slovakia goes beyond WHO guidelines for combating swine flu, which do not advocate travel restrictions and border closures.
"This is the flu," Dr. David Mercer, head of WHO Europe's communicable diseases unit, told Deutsche Welle. "Efforts at containing it are not going to succeed."
The WHO urged caution before another potential surge in infections in Ukraine, though new reports cite a drop in new cases. Dr. Mercer called such predictions "premature."
"We are expecting, in fact, that there will be an increase in cases and a fairly high disease burden for weeks," he added.

If people over in Wisconsin start dropping like the people in Ukraine did, you can bet we will be mobilizing around here and bugging out movie style.
Would the government be stupid enough to push the button on their own people again??
