Does this mask make my face look long?

Mexican Swine Flu. Will all you people in readerland please call it by its real name. Mexican Swine Flu. Not H1N1. I said it before and I say it again. Americans have a hard time facing the truth so we invent a soft language to protect us from it. It gets worse with every generation. Here are a few examples. There is a condition in combat when a fighting person’s nervous system has been stressed to its peak. The nervous system has snapped or is about to snap. In the first world war that condition was known as “shell shock.” That was seventy years ago. Then a whole generation went by and the second world war came along. The very same combat condition was known as “battle fatigue.” Then we had the war in Korea in 1950, the condition was then changed to “operational exhaustion.” Then came the Vietnam war, the very same combat condition became “post traumatic stress disorder.” Now, in our current war we have shortened it to its acronym of PTSD. Give me a damn break. Mexican Swine Flu. Say it out loud. Toilet paper became bathroom tissue. Tennis shoes became sneakers then sneakers became running shoes. Information became directory assistance. The dump became the landfill. Partly cloudy became partly sunny. Trailers became mobile homes. Double-wides became modular homes. Constipation became occasional irregularity. Poor people lived in slums. Now the economically disadvantaged occupy sub-standard housing in the inner city. We have no more stupid people. They have a learning disorder,or, check this one out, they are minimally exceptional. Say it ten times with me. Mexican Swine Flu. I came from a poor family and my Mother was “broke” many times before payday from The Martha Mills. Today she could have a negative cash flow. In previous years the CIA killed people. Today they neutralize them or depopulate the area. The pentagon actually measures nuclear radiation in something called sunshine units. Write it ten times for me Mexican Swine Flu. Israeli murderers are called commandos, Arab commandos are called terrorists. Then we have, are you ready for this, Freedom Fighters. Now if fire fighters fight fire and crime fighters fight crime, what does Freedom Fighters fight? There is a bright side. You do not have to die. They will not say that I “bit the dust, bought the farm, kicked the bucket, or that I am pushing up daisies.” I can just “expire.” Just like a magazine subscription. But please Lord, not before I make my point. Sing along with me, “Bad pig, bad pig, what you gonna do…what you gonna do when they come for you.?” Go ahead, sing it in English. Mexican Swine Flu, Mexican Swine Flu. Please do me a favor. Every time you see or hear H1N1…correct it and say Mexican Swine Flu. ——————————- Sheila Tolley
