Not Worried About Swine Flu

An actual letter from a reader.

Liked your piece regarding the "Swine Flu" -- you provided me more information relative to same than my doctor at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Long Beach a long shot.

Personally, I'm not too concerned with H1N1. Here's why:

Chinese calendar three years ago: Year of the Cow
Result? "Mad Cow Disease"

Chinese calendar two years ago: Year of the Bird
Result? "Bird Flu"

Chinese calendar this year: Year of the Pig
Result? "Swine Flu"

My only concern?

Next year is the Year of the Cock.

Funny ...but wrong. There is no "Year of the Bird", though there is a Year of the Rooster (aka "Cock") -- the next one is 2017. 2009 is Ox, 2008 was Rat, and Pig was in 2007.
