Yesterday I came home from work and M turned on the Moroccan news which announced that bird flu has been confirmed in Burkina Faso.

BURKINA FASO: Bird flu outbreak confirmed, but country unprepared

Then this morning I received an email from the US Embassy announcing a town hall meeting next week to answer questions about bird flu.

Well, I'm still going to buy those juicy birds from Bruno the chicken merchant of death.

bugger eh? you'll have to turn down any offers of employment in the poultry farms then.

there's been a few birds carking it on the lake round here i think, but it doesn't seem to have had a large impact. or maybe they're just not talking about it.

Yeah...the poultry farmer gig was my back-up in case I couldn't work as a professional organizer or cut-rate belly-dancer.
