YET MORE PERSPECTIVE on the swine flu outbreak and the surrounding alarmism.

UPDATE. This is what panic looks like:
The commotion began when AirTran Flight 85 from Cancun, Mexico, radioed ahead to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport that two passengers were had nausea and fever, said airport spokesman Jonathan Dean.

"The airport's fire and rescue department responded," Dean tells WTOP.

"They evaluated the passengers and determined that there was no public health threat.

"They were actually ill before boarding."

The two men were isolated and examined, said David Paulson, director of communications for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters said they simply had too much to drink.
