Napolitano's Grasp of the Obvious Still Strong

Janet Napolitano has some more words of wisdom for America. She said Wednesday that people should expect "a big influx" of swine flu cases this fall. Her advice to them was to prepare as best they can.

Remember this was the genius that offered us the helpful, "if you are sick, stay home."

Meanwhile, this could be deadly serious. There have been over 550 deaths in the United States from H1N1 and a scientific advisory panel recently sent the
White House a report saying it was possible that anywhere from 30 percent to half the population could catch what doctors call "2009 H1N1" and that it was also possible there could be between 30,000 and 90,000 deaths.

What's really worrisome is that Janet, who couldn't protect one state's border with Mexico when she was a governor, is now in charge of watching over the whole country. If this virus changes to a more deadly strain we're doomed.
