Swine flu: Is it real or merely an excuse for when economy plummets again?

Conspiracy theorists abound. I know a guy who's certain those contrails streaking the sky are caused by pilots secretly spreading diseases, for whatever reason, and he undoubtedly is curious about the recent outbreak of swine flu.

This same guy, an avid hunter and fisherman, has a gigantic water tank in his house, for when disaster strikes, and an arsenal with which to defend himself when anarchy reigns. He thinks Twitter is a tool used by the CIA to spy on citizens.

So it's no surprise that, as the CDC is advising Americans against travel to Mexico (putting a damper on my upcoming fishing trip to Cabo San Lucas), and as the media are frightening people back into hiding within the relative safety of their homes, that the theorists are becoming vocal. Below is just one example. I don't buy into it, but there are many, including my hunter-fisherman friend, who might. Enjoy:
