TODAY IS A LIGHT DAY - A LITTLE SWINE FLU AND VOTING

While out and about yesterday I saw people with bandanas covering their mouths and cheap face masks. It just reminded me how easy it is to panic people. In part I was out at Walmart to buy an allergy medicine. Yes, I was running warm and felt miserable. But it does not mean swine flu. This morning I am fine. I am back to a cold hearted 95.8 (my normal), with watery eyes, and a scratchy throat. My point is we are in allergy season - allergies are not swine flu.

I am concerned that the panic over swine flu is going to cause people to not vote in the city commission election. I plan on early voting today. I only get to vote in the at large race. Basically, because I cannot support Ayala or Gowen, I will be pulling for Velez. I have heard a few nice things about him, so I can live with my vote. The reality is, the runoff will be between Ayala and Gowen.

So go vote if you have not already voted, and be attentive to the swine flu, but do not panic - it is allergy season and all you may have is allergies.
