11-Week-Old 5th Suspected Swine Flu Death in City
The Times lists some of the dozens of "underlying conditions" to which city health officials refer when they portray swine-flu-related deaths as singular and hence not a worry to the general population. Interestingly, the widow of Mitchell Wiener, whose death was so described, is not having it. "He was overweight and he was taking medicine for high blood pressure," she says. "How many people 50 and above don't?"
Elites TV suggests the recent illnesses of the Mets' John Maine and Carlos Beltran might be related to swine flu, though the team's performance in recent weeks is more suggestive of Epstein-Barr.
