David: “Swine Flu Fascism”: what an appropriate name. Recall that, in Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” the tyrannical regime was run by the pigs! (Maybe the kids will learn the meaning to the lyrics of the old song “how you gonna’ keep ‘em down on the farm, after they’ve seen the farm”?)

Secondly: I watched Ron Paul’s appearance on The Daily Show last night. One quality of Ron’s that is rarely mentioned, but which is essential to the success of the libertarian philosophy, is his light-hearted sense of humor that was so evident on this show. Compare his sense of joyfulness with the grim and glum Madeleine Albrights, the Rudy Giulianis, the Hillary Clintons, and the Charles Krauthammers, and you see a contrast befitting a life-enhancing philosophy.
