Swine Flu at University of Alabama is Back in the News!

Surprise, surprise, surprise, as Gomer Pyle used to say.

Now it looks like 58, or 59, or maybe 64, UA students at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa have or have had Novel H1N1 [swine] flu.

After eight days of no new news on the swine flu outbreak at UA  (reported to have affected 54 students), I did my daily simple Google News search for flu+Tuscaloosa and found 14 results newly posted in the past 18 hours (28 Aug. 12 pm CST)!!!

What has changed?  What’s happening?


Four or 5, or maybe 10, Crimson Tide footballer players may have this flu.

That is news.
