Swine Flu can make you feel like crap

Obviously.  But apparently, it has made the Mexicans feel bad on the inside too.  In the NYTimes today, an article explores the stigma that this swine flu has inflicted on the collective self confidence of the Mexican people.

Human beings need to evolve a little bit. I understand fear and how it can result in rash, unfortunate actions that are intended to self-defend. It would  be nice that before herding healthy people into quaratine because they are Mexican, you take a minute and think. Maybe some  fact based research, call me crazy.

Its like humans need to take that mental step that one does when they create a family.  Decisions are made for the good of the partners and the kids..not parent centered or kid centered but family centered.  Extrapolate that out and we need to make good community decisions, not individual centered ones.  I guess that is a lot to ask of humans especially when there are people like this that the rest have to some how counter and negate.
