Spying on us

It's like making a wish: put your ailments on Facebook, and get the president to crack down on FDA slackness.

This article is a bit feel-good for my taste, and the ending prompts me to say, "Hey, you smoke, too, Mr. President!", but it is disturbing that food-borne illnesses have tripled in a decade, and the last time I heard "downer cow," I was reading The Jungle.

It was painful and rather spectral. Oddly enough, it greatly improved my complexion.

Ok, it might just be some "regular" virus thing that people call the flu (no relation to influenza, which kills you in a whole other way), but ____!, it's totally nothing I deserve! : ) I don't know anyone personally with this (outside my household of 2 humans), and so I'm wondering, did I get it from you (St. Louis), or are you about to share my KC germs?

This virus is so nasty you can get it from a phone call.
