The 30,000 number is exactly what everyone is ignoring during this media insanity, I totally agree with that. People of all ages and types die of the flu all the time. Not a good thing, but it's expected.
And I don't personally trust *any* president to save us. Not Obama, nor Bushes, Clintons, whatever. Hand washing, staying home when you're sick, and good pharma/vaccines. That'll save us.
