Apologies… and a question

It has become apparent to me through recent media coverage that we’re not supposed to call it the swine flu anymore, but H1N1. I’m sorry for offending.

I do, however, have a question:

Why is “swine flu” not used anymore?

  • Are swine offended by the term?
  • Is the swine industry (for lack of a better term) offended by the usage and association with swine?
  • Is it an attempt to make the virus kosher?
  • Or is it something else?

Inquiring minds want to know…

I think the pork producers freaked out.
