I have been bitten only once that I can recall since the spraying began in Dallas. I seldom get bitten anyway.

Yippee. On another virus note, I've been reading The Stand and it's pretty scary to read how fast a virus can spread.

Influenza is perhaps the worst possible virus for a pandemic....by the time you show symptoms, you've been contagious for days. Imagine that in a major airport...say Hartsfield or Heathrow.
