The newspapers are filled not only with stories about President Obama’s latest speech on health care, but on swine flu cases — Connecticut, Delaware, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, OklahomaSouth Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

To be sure, some people have died from the swine flu (mentioned in a few of the stories linked to above). But many, many more people die from heart disease, cancer and stroke. Even influenza and pneumonia, a category that takes in much more than simply swine flu, claims just 10 percent of the number of people who die from heart disease.

It looks like another case of media frenzy.
