What should we tell the children? Are the bird flu experts right that there is a 50-50 chance of an epidemic? If the bird flu mutates and half the population is wiped out, are you prepared? Is your will up to date? Are you stocking up on food in case of quarantine? Are you washing your hands frequently especially if you spend time in public places? Do you still eat chicken? Can you find your duct tape and plastic sheeting in an emergency? Just wondering.
