Fear and loathing right on your block
After all, a whopping 120 Californians have caught the WNVirus this year, rendering your chances of you succumbing to it roughly the same as you winning a Pick Six at Santa Anita---whether you go to the track or not. (Note how media frame these numbers, though---"a five-fold increase"!)
But here's the latest fearmongering twist on it all: the fishwrap of record wants you to worry about the West Nile Virus crisis whenever you worry about the subprime foreclosure crisis.
You just can't make this stuff up.
Whatever you do today, don't go outside. You might pass a foreclosed house with a swimming pool and catch a disease that has thus far afflicted 120 out of 37,000,000 of us this year.
